With 100 acres of land directly on the ocean, two pools, multiple restaurants and a spa, it is much more than a hotel. It is really a retreat type place where you go to unwind, eat and drink.
The resort was recently acquired and they are clearly spending a lot of money renovating. I've seen some complaints on here about this but we found the renovation to be completely unobtrusive since the resort is made up of multiple buildings and no one is staying in the buildings that are under renovation. You can barely tell that work is being done even as you walk by as they have the buildings being worked on completely covered in tarps that are designed to blend in with the background. I've only seen that done in Europe on monuments under renovation. It does show a great level of care . The service was great from valet to the end of our stay.
