“It was exquisite.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2011

I happened upon this hotel when another hotel srewed up my reservation. I was pleasantly surprised. It is a brand new hotel and was very beautifully decorated. I felt like I was in South Beach. Very classy. From the bellhop to the front desk, the service was superb. The hotel did not have many amenities yet but the stay felt really relaxing and not exclusive unlike many of the all-inclusives. If you are looking for a typical all inclusive type environment with people running all over the place then this is not the place for you. What I saw were adults having a good time. I would stay again.
