Not a bad hotel at all, furniture, carpeting, fixtures, etc., are quite new and bed was very comfortable. Little details were sometimes lacking, such as, batteries in thermostats (in both rooms) were failing, cordless phone wasn’t working (plugged into wrong outlet), internet was running about 1.3 mb/sec (usable, but should be 10x faster), they used silicone on the tub drain and didn’t remove excess (should have used plumber’s putty), no liners in waste baskets (maybe it’s environmentally better?), beer bottles outside the back exit for two days, front desk didn’t know how to retrieve messages on in-room phone when I enquired (dial 620)... nothing really horrible, but there is certainly room for improvement. I also enquired about the BW member perks (if any), and received my welcome basket (water and a sesame seed bar) as I was checking out.
They are still going through renovations and had a nice pool, but the hot tub isn’t finished yet. The restaurant, Farina & Fab, was decent, though we only had breakfast there (twice), and the lounge looked nice, but we didn’t visit while it was opened.
There are public beach access points across the street to the south or north, but the weather wasn’t cooperating, and I didn’t visit... maybe next time?
