The Cedar Bar is ideal for sundowner cocktails, and the Sugar Mill is a unique fine-dining experience. The live music every night was great, but more variety would have been...

Beautiful hotel. We had a suite like a small bungalow right on the beach so relaxing to just sit and read a book. The food was exceptional with so much staff and the staff were so attentive. The golf course was quite challenging but with a caddy to guide you it was very enjoyable. would certainly recommend.
