This is our second visit in 2 years and I think they got better than last summer. Rooms were nice and well designed with plenty of room and a comfy bed in the junior suite with a view to die for. I watched dolphin pods almost every morning I looked for them pass by through the bay. The hotel is beautiful with a lot of detail paid attention to as well as extremely clean. Food is actually better this year (it was good last year) as the chef is incorporating more seasonings now. We didn't have a bad meal at any time. We ate at 6 of the resteraunts (2 of them twice not counting the awesome breakfast buffet on the Market Cafe we frequented daily) with highest marks for Hamitsu and Capers (we heard Capers, the Italian place, was weakest but I disagree and Tepenyaki is great.). The best asset of the resort is the people. Jose and Humberto at Market Cafe for breakfast and lunch are the epitome of professional and most excellent at taking care of the guest. Everyone was kind, pleasant and went the extra mile for all guests ... even the not so pleasant guests. Activities schedule offers much to do if you don't want to relax and enjoy the drinks and view. Seriously, for the value I don't think this place can be beat. I don't think we are done with PV or Secrets yet. Looking forward to next year already.
