The hotel staff was not helpful at all. They did not do anything to make you feel like you or your family were special. The pool staff was amazing.

The beach is very close to the hotel, with in waking distance if you are health. You will see beautiful views in your way there and also little charming shops.

Not much of a beach, but a very nice boardwalk from the St. Regis (at 96th) south beyond what will be the new home of the Four Seasons. One path for pets, and another pet free parallel path. Enjoy.

The beach is clean and well kept. Several restaurants within walking distance. Great walking paths. Would love to go back.

Great beach trail and well maintained. Do bring a towel and your own chair. The beach hotels will not allow you to use or rent a lounge chair. No lifeguards on duty.

Beach is very crowded and sea gulls are aggressive. Do not eat on the beach! Even if you do not eat on the beach others do and it can be very disturbing to relax.

Coming from a stay at the local ritz-carlton, beach has lots of variety as you'll see the normal beach goers plus fishermen on the local spit plus passing charter boats in the nearby channel. Beach surface is average with fine shell, but then again I've spoilt by Australian beaches. Good pathways available close behind the beach.
