My mom and I stayed here for two nights on our way back from 2 weeks in Australia February 27 and 28, 2013. Our travel agent put us in the Renew because she said it would be a perfect spot to rejuvenate after the long flights and two weeks of walking about in Australia. When we walked into the lobby, I immediately felt welcome and relaxed. The staff was amazing. They present you with a galss of fresh pineapple juice and a cool, moist lemon scented towel for your face. Check-in was seamless as was the checkout. The owner of Renew, Dan was a class act and I had the pleasure of chatting with him at their Wednesday afternoon guest mixer happy hour in the cute hotel bar. The beautiful and outgoing bartender Jackie made me feel welcome as well and she made me some great drinks. You must try her pineapple mojito! Dan and Jackie also gave me a great tip on a restaurant for that evening. The rooms were not too small as some have written. They were big enough for us. The decor of the hotel is very fen shui and just makes you feel relaxed. I loved the free use of beach towels and beach chairs too. All the trolleys, buses and most tour groups have a stop less than 200 feet from the hotel. Noise was not an issue for us. The beach is only 50 steps or so from the front door. I do plan to go back and spened a week there next March for my birthday.
