I have stayed here twice for sales meetings. It is a very nice property and is well maintained. The staff is very good, with the possible exception of the wait staff in the breakfast buffet. We were practically finished by the time we were offered coffee and water on both our arrival and departure days. The food that was served during our conference was excellent for meeting fare. Nothing was over cooked or dried out. The rooms are very comfortable and the bedding is exceptional. The fitness center is nicely furnished and the equipment pretty well maintained for hotel equipment. The property is beautiful and the location could not be better. You do have to walk across a pretty busy street to get to the beach, but that is a minor inconvenience. Since we were there for a sales meeting and the company covered our room, I do not know the going rate. The rate posted on the back of the door in the room was $720, which is ridiculous, but I am sure that is probably a CYA on their part. It is an excellent place to stay if the rate is affordable for you.
