  1. Port d’Hiver 

Stay in a historic building. 
The Port d’Hiver bed and breakfast is a little different from the other options on this list, but it’s a beautiful option, so certainly something worth considering. It’s unique and boutique, and it offers not just close proximity to the beach but a close proximity to everything else too. This hotel offers a touch of class that works well in its historic location. For example, breakfast is served on fine china, and your rooms are cabana-inspired, with spa pools. Free drinks and cookies are available all day, and there is even a turn-down service. This adult-only hotel is a cut above.
