The room was beautiful, beds/pillows very comfortable and loved the ceiling fan. Hot tub was great and staff amazing. The firepit and view of the ocean was beautiful. We were able to get into our room by 1:00. Checkout was easy as well. I would recommend staying at this beautiful place to anyone wishing a nice experience.

The location of this hotel is wonderful. Yet for the price (we paid $370.00 a night) I was hoping the room would have been nicer. It is more grand in the photos than in person. It was clean but smelled very musty. The room was incredibly dark and even with all the window shades open and the lamps turned on, it still felt very dark. It was great the room had a small fridge and microwave which was a nice addition. The pool are is small but sufficient. I don't think we would come back.
