We had stayed in the hotel for our honeymoon and were thoroughly happy with our experience.
The staff is very friendly and we felt very welcomed from the beginning with our encounters with valet and reception. Valet parking is required for all guests and is included as part of the daily resort fees, which we did not mind at all.
The hotel welcomed us with a complimentary bottle of champagne along with complimentary tastings of macadamia nuts in our hotel room. The room itself was nicely sized and the king bed was so fluffy and warm, it was the most comfortable bed ever! We were also extremely happy with the size of the shower and the fact that there were double showerheads in our bathroom.
Our room was on the first floor and it overlooked and opened into the pool and ocean area - we loved being on the first floor because we had our own reclining chair and it also gave us easy access to the pool / beach area. We were able to enjoy sunset dinners in our lanai - I would recommend staying on the first floor for those reasons.
Breakfast at the hotel's restaurant Red Salt was great. We loved loved the waffles there, served with crushed macadamia nuts and accompanied with a duo of coconut and maple syrups - (we also tried their lemon souffle pancakes and I personally prefer the crunchiness of the waffles over the softness of the pancakes).
My husband was able to take a surf lesson that was offered by the hotel. I would recommend to book in advance as there are only 4 slots per session, and two sessions per day.
We also took advantage of the spa services and had a couple's oceanside massage. The cabana was right by the entrance to the beach and for most of the 80 minute session we were in harmony with the sounds of the ocean and the great hands of our masseuses.
Overall we absolutely loved our stay at the hotel - what a great way to start off our romantic honeymoon!
