It is a beautiful building and the rooms were quite nice. However, the luxury did not extend to some of the items in the room. The towels and robes were ok but could have been better. I also felt there should have been more towels, coffee etc. I know I could call down and ask but I shouldn't have too. Wonderful, huge tub but no bath salts or such to help enjoy the bath. Also we booked a queen bed and got a double.

Felt like a Princess!

This hotel has done a wonderful job integrating the old with the new. The castle has a rich history and yet the hotel is modern and sophisticated. It is a short walk to the ocean and about 15 minutes taxi ride to the center of town. I would highly recommend this hotel to all of my family and friends.

The hotel and accommodations were exceptional. The staff went above and beyond our expectations. We went with a group of 14 people and we all feel the same way. Would not think twice about coming again.
