Was here for only 2 nights on business. Did not see or use much of the grounds, and saw just 10 minutes of sun (walked through a gate to the boardwalk right onto the beach).
Was impressed by the courteous and professional staff at every turn - from the front desk to the servers. The on site restaurant Essensia was truly wonderful and delicious. Waitstaff very welcoming, knowledgeable and pleasant. Must have the Amazone Paiche fish if they have it.
Rooms were clean and very comfortable. Little amenities - turn down sheets at night, little chocolates, robes, Aveda shower products - nice. The area surrounding the hotel on Collins Avenue is a bit desolate - not much action or activity there. Hotel is its own "oasis" as another reviewer put it.
I would come back, though prices are bit high if one cannot expense it. Would definitely at least come back to the restaurant for a meal - really excellent.
