This property is a treasure. From the creative flowers that adorn the hotel to the gracious and amazing staff (Joey from Guest Services looked like he should have been on TV), this resort beckons you to stay. I went for a girl's weekend and we never left the grounds except to walk the beautiful beach. The food at Raya (server Elizabeth and Mat from the kitchen) was outstanding. Sordfish tacos in wonton paper were the winner (and the oatmeal ice cream). The view is amazing at sunset.
The pool offered some tasty homemade nachos served by Kaitlyn who was new and very cute, Enosteak (server Rosette and Anthony from the kitchen) were fantastic. The lavender and thyme butter was clever and decadant...not to mention the tuna tartar that was incredibly fresh. The steak was the big winner until the desserts appeared....lovely.
Our rooms were very simple with lovely details that played off the grand masterpiece which was the view of the ocean outside the french doors.
I did not want to leave the resort, but alas, back to reality. It is good to know that this kind of magical, friendly service society exists.
