For the past several years our extended family of four generations have visited this hotel to see and enjoy the band JAVA JIVE !! We spend this entire Monday in the middle of July dancing, singing, eating and drinking while enjoying the ambiance of the Safari outdoor patio, bar and dance floor with the magnificent view of Newport harbor! This year I have tried to contact this hotel and restaurant several times. They have had many excuses for the manager who is never available to come to the phone. I am told that it is rumored that they will have jazz bands there this summer. I am wishing I could contact someone at the hotel to ask if JAVA JIVE will be there? What a dissapointment it will be if they are not ! Hopefully this hotel is not making changes that effect the hiring of this awesome entertainment! Unfortunatly they are not being straight forward and honest about their summer schedule and I question what will happen to their business because of this? We are not going to book here again until we get an answer. They are losing alot of business with our family!
