I can't say enough good things about the Savoy! Here, you are treated like royalty, from the poolside and beachside drink service to the fresh warm towels and ice cold washcloths they give you midday, to how everyone on staff magically remembers your name and what you like to drink!
We love the Savoy so much. We honeymooned there in 2004, then came back last year (2013) for our 9 yr anniversary, and I plan to come back every year now! We loved talking with Alexa who did beach service the day we arrived, and then Rocky did such an amazing job thereafter! He is so quick to jump whenever you need him and knows just the right thing to provide or recommend! I felt like we had a personal assistant during our stay, and he was still so attentive to everyone else at the same time! Amazing. Jose was wonderful serving us breakfast, and another Jose was also delightful at beach service, where he introduced us to the Caipirinha!
We met Gary, who I think is a manager or owner, and learned the cool history of the Savoy. How it was once home to Ron Wood of the Rolling Stones, who threw lavish and loud parties here in the 80s. Now, however, the Savoy is less raucous and much more restful and family oriented. Attractive to Europeans traveling with their families, when you come to the savoy you feel like you've stepped into a European beach resort. Many languages spoken, which is enjoyable for the ear!
The buildings themselves are 80 years old, so expect to feel a historical vibe in the hallways and rooms. The rooms are HUGE and very comfortable. There aren't many balconies that directly overlook the ocean but the ones that do are SPECTACULAR!
The Savoy has and will have a very special place in our hearts forever. You could have a fabulous time and never leave the property if you wanted! Great kitchen, great drinks, top notch amazing service. We love everything about it!
