Lovely in all ways!
Great location. Wonderful staff. Lots of amenities. Would definitely stay here again.
Limited USB outlets. $20 a day to park despite resort fees.
The location is great and it has a resort feel while maintaining the boutique spirit. It is mostly very quiet and very relaxing and there is some great opportunities for sunset viewing in the evening. The staff is a little hit and miss, some are overwhelmingly friendly and helpful, some felt a little like they were being put out.
It’s just so expensive and there is a hidden charge of 20 dollars a day to park your car. The restaurant and bar menu are quite average for what you’re paying and their “mai tai hour” only lasts 15 minutes which is a real shame as it was wonderful and really created a community spirit among the guests.
Service was amazing! Good food, quiet surroundings, beautiful spaces!
Our room was supposed to have a partial ocean view, but the view was just of bushes.
