Dawn beach is gorgeous and the Westin is a beautiful, clean facility located right on the beach with spectacular views. The one major drawback to the resort is its isolation. Without a car (fortunately we had one) you are a prisoner and the Westin's food is not good enough to keep people only at the resort.
Maddeningly there is another area (Oyster Pond) 1/4 mile down the beach with a few fun good restaurants but you can't get there walking across the beach because of a small rock formation that blocks passage. Instead you can either walk there (up and over a very steep hill with a poorly lit winding road) or drive. It really is a shame because less than 100 yards of a narrow walkway around the rocks would make the Dawn Beach Westin about 1000 times more inviting.
