I attended for business, so did not take advantage of the outdoor spaces which could have improved this visit. The lobby and meeting spaces were beautiful - the decor was slanted to the heavy wood and very ornate fixtures, but still looked well kept. The meeting space we were in opened onto a cement dock that secured all of the huge yachts. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine for a few minutes before getting to work. Service was fine, but they try not to make eye contact.
The room is where it really fell short. It could be any chain hotel in America and I would not expect to pay this price for such basic rooms. The bathrooms were awful - small and very basic. The room was clean, but the appointments were cheap and basic.
