It will be even better... if they ever finish the place
Posted Oct 13, 2012
I had read some earlier reviews so I knew to expect the time share pitch. It was fair, 2 hours of our time for 2 free massages and $100 for Javier's (excellent food). I had also heard about construction. What's puzzling is they are only half finished with the main entrance and lobby they started tearing up the jacuzzi in the middle of their beautiful pool for "renovations". I sat in the thing the day before and it looked fine.I didn't see any work being done on the front. Regardless, the jack hammers started on Monday at 10 and went until the day we left (Thursday). We got used to it after awhile but still kind of annoying.
Other than that, the rooms and staff are great. We lucked out (or they knew it was our first time) and got a garden view on the second floor but could see the ocean and shore break anyway. I think most of the of rooms on the 2nd floor would see some water.
Not a lot of selection in the market and prices are high but it was cheaper than eating at the resturants. Since they all have kitchens, it was nice to have some basic stuff for breakfast and late night snacks.They do have $3.50 tacos on Mon, Wed & Friday from 11-5 that were OK to good. Happy hour 4-6 had 2 for 1 cocktails for $8
Free, wired internet in the room but you should bring an Airport Express or other small WAP. The wi-fi coverage at the pool was spotty at best.
