    The attention to detail and the personal touches for our experience. They made our anniversary very special!

    The facility and view are outstanding.

    Across the board the staff was overly solicitous but utterly useless. This is clearly a management issue, and they should put everyone in a retraining program like the Four Seasons. Also, the extra charges are exhorbitant (really).

    the views and the bungalow room was great

    food service (both in room and at the pool lunch) was slow, inaccurate and not as expected. although the food quality was very good.
