A nice hotel but not as exceptional as we expected at a Waldorf Astoria property.
We checked in online with the HHonors application which worked great. The only problem, the hotel gave our room away before we arrived. Not a great start. They attempted tom make up for it with a few dollars off the bill but it did not cover the overall inconvenience or disappointment.
Our room was nice and functional but again not what we imagined it should be for Waldorf Astoria.
The beach service and staff were great. Everyone was VERY helpful and the little surprises throughout the day was a treat.
The hotel dining was good but not worth the high price.
There were a lot of private event held on the hotel grounds that were very loud on several nights (loud music and crowds). If that might bother you, ask what is on the calendar before you arrive.
The hotel is a fairly long walk away from restaurants and shops. On the positive side, the area is private and quiet.
Overall a nice choice despite the problems although I'm still not sure it is a good value for the money.
