We booked this hotel because it has a Spa and was close to the beach. Upon arriving, it was paradise. The grounds are clean, and it has an excellent view of the ocean. The hotel is valet parking only, and the package we booked included the valet. As we drove up, we were greeted and helped with our luggage, Check in was a breeze. When checking in, Tiffany helped us with local recommendations, and upgraded us from the resort view, to a pool view at no cost! She highly recommended the Chart house steak & seafood house, we made reservations through the Consierge which upgraded our seating to a VIP window seat table, printed out our menu's with our party name & gave us a complimentary lava cake dessert! We enjoyed the Spa & got an hour long massage which was nice, grounds and pool area were kept up well & nice to walk around. The beach is about a 10 minute walk, but was enjoyable as well. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet one morning, it was a really nice buffet. It was about $24 per person, but there was a custom omlet station, fresh fruit, fresh waffles, juice, cereals & oatmeal, pasteries etc...
There was also a star bucks we stopped by one morning which had muffins, but they were muffins like you get at Costco, the buffet is much better! There is also a fitness center that has fresh water, headphones and state of the art equipment.
We stayed in a room with a balcony overlooking the pool, The bedding was SO soft and this bed had to be one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in at a hotel. The bathroom was the standard tub/shower combo. Granite countertops, tv in room ...etc... But the balcony was a nice touch to be able to enjoy overlooking the ocean.
