Built on a steep hill, there are stairs everywhere on this property. Tiny parking areas with poor access to the some of the smallest rooms I've seen at a Hyatt property made lugging our bags a real chore, so paying for some assistance might be a back-saving tactic here. The path from the lobby to our room led into and out of a pool area, which is odd to say the least as we needed to step around puddles and kids to reach the next set of stairs. The room itself was clean and well appointed but creaky and cramped. What might have been a spectacular view of the ocean was well blocked by mature foliage and trees, so don't go for the view. The parking area that wound up being closest to our room was so small that there was no way to even turn the car around in it, and we needed to back down the very steep driveway to the main road when leaving.
For the cost, this is not a property I will return to.
