I have traveled to this lovely hotel a number of times and have usually been very satisfied. We enjoy the rooms in the main building that have a lovely view of the ocean right across the street. We requested one of those rooms and although we were in that section, our room also overlooked a large, messy industrial area of the hotel (mechanical repairs, etc.). This was very unsightly and took away from the beauty of the view. There was also a loud air system near this area that went on and off 24 hrs and was very noisy. This was the New Year's holiday and although we did expect some celebratory noise, we did not expect to be situated between a large family in multiple rooms with kids that ran up and down the halls screaming between the rooms. Surely this family would have preferred being next to each other and not on either side of a couple celebrating their anniversary! The staff, although nice, seemed confused about what they were doing at the hotel for New Year's Eve. We were told many times that nothing was occurring and made other plans. Upon our return that evening, we found live music and champagne toasts in the public lounge. We would have rather spent some time and money there! But this is a lovely property with beautiful grounds, great views and very polite staff. Unfortunately for this week, it seemed like management had take the week off!
