This was supposed to be a terrific celebratory visit to a local, iconic resort. However, it was a few days of successive disappointments. The rooms are beautiful and the ocean side balcony views are exceptional. If I never left the room, things might have been better. The visit was also during the transition from Westin to Hilton and it was not going well for some of the staff. Hilton Diamond amenities were not provided, the restaurants did not live up to the price point and some of the finishes are worn and look old. The TV did not work, not a big deal but was just another detail that you don't expect when paying as much as we did for the stay. Internet service was poor as well. The pool areas are congested and tend to be very loud. What is left of the beach is crowded. The pace lacks the beach resort feel that I was seeking and could not replace it with an upscale urban experience.
For the same price, resorts in Ft. Lauderdale and Miami are a much better value and a lot more fun plus they have other restaurants within walking distance.
