The ocean views and rocking chairs on the balconies are a real plus. The buffet breakfast which is included in the rates is substantial and of good quality. The staff is generally knowledgeable and friendy except a new person at the front desk who had real difficulty splitting the bill for two seperate rooms that was originally placed on a single credit card.
The bedding is comfortable but the room is a bit on the small side. The pink bathrooms need to be seriously redone.
The worst part of the hotel is this pervasive feeling that the management is suffering from theft paranoia. The lamps in the lobby are chained down. A credit card security deposit is collected upon check in for any possible damages or theft of room items during guests stay. TO MAKE THINGS WORSE, a price list inventory of all items in the room is posted in the the hotel directory from the ashtray which is 3.00 to the wall mirrors which are 110.00.
In all my world travels, I have never encountered it and personally found it insulting. Anyone that can afford to spent 350.00/night in high season is not going to steal a plastic ashtry or carry the wicker mirror under their arm as they walk through the lobby. This is downright tacky, to say the least.
