The property is breathtaking, on a hilltop along the ocean. Ocean views from many rooms and from common outdoor areas. A large property in a gated community, with a beautiful beach (small, but lovely) below on the north end of the property. We stayed in the "historic hotel" section, in a 2 bedroom suite that was oddly configured (lockout bedroom but you can't lock the whole suite from the outside). The shower in the master suite was completely broken on checkin, someone came to look on Sunday and said it needed a part they didn't have but it would be fixed Monday. It didn't get fixed until Tuesday and we left Wednesday. By the time the shower was repaired we realized there wasn't enough hot water to last a full shower. But we had a lovely view from the balcony and were able to shower in our friend's bedroom. Their toilet didn't work too well. We met people in an adjoining room who didn't have air conditioning, so I was thankful that ours was working.
The restaurants were not bad, we preferred Azure for food and views - we had a few excellent meals there. We had one "ok" meal at Zen, most things were fine but the lobster was very overcooked. We got several apologies but were charged full freight. Lunch at the Carriage House was fine, nothing special, but the views from there are also stunning and worth it.
Checkin was an ordeal. They served us lovely rum punches (the best we've ever had), but we could still tell time.
The beach elevator was out of service the first day we arrived, but was back in service after that. Power went out in the coffee shop the next day so no coffee. The General Store onsight is fine for basics and beverages.
The beach is public but security guards keep the local hustlers within limits during the day. I would have loved to go down for a walk at night but didn't feel quite safe without the gendarmes.
There is almost nothing to do at night. There's a lovely indoor/outdoor pub but any entertainment (minimal while we were there) shuts down at 10 pm.
There was construction noise outside our room several days, waking us earlier than we'd have liked.
Still, despite all the negatives, we had a lovely, relaxing, romantic getaway.
