The living social deal included 20% off food with chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of champagne. My boyfriend proposed and having the strawberries and champagne was a wonderful way to help celebrate! The staff was very friendly, although the one time we used the concierge for a restaurant suggestion it ended in disappointment. We were suggested "El Set" down the road. We were the only ones there, their caesar salad was three leaves of lettuce with dressing and we spent $80 on drinks and two appetizers. Would not recommend anyone go there.
We had an 11th floor room on the ocean side which had a wonderful view and being able to hear the ocean waves was great. It was so quiet and peaceful and yes the beds were very large and comfortable. It was great having the private beach. It wasn't crowded during our stay so we were able to really enjoy ourselves. The average age of the guests was retired though just for reference.
I also wouldnt bother with the spa, I paid $7 to have my nail polish changed and was shooed out before it was dry and it ended up being the worst job I've had.
The nachos were good, but I wouldn't bother with the brunch. We werent told we had another option (menu) for breakfast and the buffet was overpriced. All I ate was pancakes and some sausage and ended up paying $15 for it. We only stayed M-F so I can't say for what it's like on the weekend. The bus was VERY convenient for us getting into town and back, but it is also very full most the time, you may have to stand.
Overall, I loved our stay here. But PV didn't impress us enough overall, so I doubt we'll go back.
