We stayed here recently for a long weekend. Although the location of the hotel on the beach is spectacular and the outside grounds of the hotel are well kept, the interior spaces are shabby and in disrepair. Our room was quite outdated (carpet, paint, wallpaper, furniture - you name it) The toilet paper holder was falling off the wall and one of the bathrooms had floor tiles that were broken and not glued down to the floor. The room overall felt quite dirty. We did not get a chance to use the pool or jacuzzi but they seemed nice and were quite popular with families. The hotel lobby has displays of the planned upgrade, scheduled to occur in early Oct 2011. I believe the hotel will be quite nice after the upgrades and would then be one of the best hotels in the area. Until then, I recommend you go somewhere else.
One other disappointing tidbit is they charge $15/day for self-park. Really?
