I stayed at this hotel while attending a meeting on site. The hotel is nicely situated in terms of the beach. The rooms are well appointed and most seem to have a good view. It is not a bad choice for a meeting or other destination event such as a wedding. However the hotel is quite far from other attractions in the area and there are no restaurants in walking distance outside of the hotel property-meaning that you are stuck with the high-price hotel restaurants. This is particularly a problem for dinner, since the relatively moderate (by hotel standards) grill and poolside restaurants do not serve dinner. This problem was compounded by the fact that, on the night we were there, there was an event which closed the sports bar Rivals, leaving guests who were not part of the group stuck with either a stuffy and very expensive steak house or a take out.coffee shop run by somewhat indifferent staff (Where's Starbucks when you need it?). The problem was compounded by the absence of a concierge in the evening and a single over-worked and unsympathetic desk clerk who did not have any suggestions for alternatives.
The meeting rooms were OK and the catering for the meeting I was attending went well. However, the quality of the internet in the meeting rooms was poor. There is also a substantial charge for internet in the hotel guest rooms.
Overall, I would suggest that families and individuals on vacation check out other alternatives.
