Beautiful older hotel set right on the spacious and beautiful beach. We had an ocean view room with a balcony. It was quite pricey, but the view was spectacular and the sound of the ocean waves rushing to shore was soothing, expecially at night (we left the sliding glass door open so we could hear it). We ate at 2 of the restaurants and weren't disappointed at either. Reservations are required at night and should be made at least a week in advance to get your choice of dining time. Always request to sit outdoors, it is a treat; and if the weather is chilly, heaters are provided. There is also a good selection of shops and that was fun to browse through. Some of the retail personal were a little over zealous, but I guess that's better than the alternative.
The spa was devine! I highly recommed going to the spa for some type of treatment and then being able to enjoy the spa facilities for the entire day.
For the price of the room, I would have thought the bathroom would have included a seperate shower, but it did not. It only had a standard sized tub with a shower curtain. This was a bit disappointing. The room did have a refrigerator, but not a mini bar. Walls between rooms are thin. I heard someone throwing up and rushed to the bathroom to see who in my party it was, only to find out it was coming from the adjacent room.
The hotel has a "hotel fee" each day of $25.00. This provides you with "free" internet, a newspaper each day and a "free" bottle of water. Once again, for the price you pay for the room, this fee seems extravagent.
