We selected the Rosedon based exclusively on TripAdvisor reviews. We were very disappointed. Here examples help: No pool towels and wet cushions and when you trek to the front desk to bring it to their attention nothing happens. The balconies are at best "semi-private" but certainly not private. They're like the outdoor galleries of a 1950s Holiday Inn. The WiFi is free and very slow. The bathroom is tiny. The "tub-shower" is a "shower-shower" with weak water pressure. There's no taxi stand and they have a deal with an expensive (but nice) car service. There're no fitness facilities. There is no restaurant. The steps to and around the back are slippery when wet and too irregular in height to meet a US building code. Offsetting these disappointments: the breakfast is "full," albeit very limited selection, and some of the furniture is very nice.
It's far from cheap. For instance, my required gratuity was over $50 per night for which I got the room cleaned, the sheets changed (but not turned down in the evening), two mints each night and two breakfasts delivered each morning.
We'll try someplace else next time. After relating my experience, I got two personal recommendations from friends.
