We decided to stay here while traveling over the holidays. The staff was exceptional and went out of their way to make sure our stay was pleasant - this includes everyone from the front desk to the restaurant staff to housekeeping. The hotel is located on the beach with all of the rooms having an ocean view. Each morning we were greeted with a message written in the sand, i.e. Merry Christmas, and returned to our room to find candy canes left by housekeeping. It's true that the little things make a big difference especially when our kids had the added thrill of believing the candy canes were left by Santa. My wife also enjoyed having her egg whites and toast on the balcony Christmas morning.
