If you are seeking the fanciest place i town this is it. The apartment style rooms are spacious... we were in 14a... very nice. A long walk down to the pool overlooking the ocean. The food here is good but the atmosphere a bit stiff... not much fun. The private beach is beautiful.

The rooms were impeccable. Beautiful view, beautiful rooms, and enough space for a lot of people. The rooms were actually gigantic, and my family was in disbelief with the size, our room had 3 bedrooms 2 and a half baths, a full kitchen, a nice lounge area, and a huge balcony.

We knew the rooms would be luxurious from all the pics online, and they were, but the staff members really made this experience great. They all were very friendly and responsive to any request -- from the chefs making omelettes in the morning to waiters/waiters/bartenders. Nice sweeping oceanview pool and 2 hot tubs. There is a beach appx 15 minutes...
