The view from both of the luxurious and stylish pools at this resort is one of the best I've ever enjoyed. Really stunning, in rain or shine. The only drawback was - and oddly this wasn't mentioned on reviews I'd read before - because this hotel is near the mouth of the river the ocean water was pretty murky and as placid as a lake. So if you're looking for great beach swimming or frolicking in the water, this isn't the place for you. But if chilling by chic pools, soaking up a world class view, and sailing or canoeing on placid waters works for you, the don't hesitate to go here!
The only let down were the restaurants. The food was pretty good but the ambience and style need a lot of work. It's fine for outdoor dining, as nothing beats an ocean view, but if it's raining you're stuck inside rooms that look as stylish and cozy as first class lounges of train stations. Quite depressing, actually.
The hotel rooms, situated in one big apartment stlye building, were also pretty ordinary in terms of style. They were nice and clean, the bath huge, but chic they were not, especially for a five star hotel in a region of the world known for hotels with cutting edge interiors.
But again, the pools, the grounds, the views and friendly staff made this a great holiday.
