Gorgeous hotel and in a perfect location.
Resort fees are mandatory even when you do not use them and parking is pricy.
This was a beautiful hotel ! Very spacious and service was excellent !
I would have appreciated that the service staff told me upfront that they put 18% gratuity upfront. I didn't catch it right away so someone got a really awesome tip.
The elevator stopped working and had to wait a long time to use it while going up or down
Elevators were broken most of the time.
The staff was awesome. Very accommodating. Pools were very well maintained and beach area was great!!! The view from our hotel room was amazing. Could see the beach and downtown from our balcony.
The carpets were a little stained on several hallway floors. Some pool towels were a little dinghy.
Quiet location away from the hubbub. Room was spacious with two bathrooms (loved that). Balcony was a fair size and overlooking the ocean. Gorgeous. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Small cafe had great coffee and sweets. A little pricey but not ridiculous. The buffet was okay; the hot food was mediocre but there was a good selection of food (oatmeal, cereals, yogurt, fruit, lunch meats, breads/bagels, eggs, sausage, french toast, pancakes, bacon etc.) It was a little pricey also. Ordering off the menu the next day was more reasonably priced and the food was fantastic.
wi-fi wasn't fabulous; took too long to get going every time we came back to the room. Once it was going, it wasn't bad. Mandatory valet service at $35/night was expensive though we did not have to ever wait very long for our car. The service was great.
Location is awesome Valet - Always willing to smile. Concierge - Very helpful and knowledgable. Pool - 3 pools and pool side bars Room - Great room with everything you need Beach - Beach was not crowded
Parking Fees were too high Drink prices were the same as you'd expect in a Ritz Carlton. This is not the Ritz.
I liked the view, the comfortable bed, the location.
the sofa bed is more than awful. Impossible to put kids to sleep there. What they call "mattress" is like a blanket full of wires. I could not believe the contrast of this poor sofa offered to sleep with the very confy bed in the same room. I asked for sth to soften the sofa, 3 times they told me they were coming to change it until we had an argument with the manager. After they apologized for the "misunderstanding - cause there was nth in the hotel to offer extra support to the sofa - they changed us to another room in the middle of the night. so if you are planning to use the sofa to sleep people....better try the floor!
Loved the Staff. They were extremely helpful and very pleasant to deal with. Adult pool was a great alternative to the family pool. It was serene and away from the busier pools.
