“Good food and pleasant ocean views”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

The food is good, basic food. Not gourmet by a long shot, but tasty and reasonably priced. The breakfast buffet is reasonably priced as well with a nice variety of items from which to select.

“Beautiful spot”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

You can't eat the view! What you expect from a hotel place....but the drinks were good, not that weak, and the bartenders are super nice. Worth it for a outdoor view

“Meh”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Food and location are very good, but we just seemed out of sync with their schedule, the hot buffet breakfast was expensive and not well stocked, and they didn't seem to manage guests very well (waited one morning 20 minutes for breakfast).

“Not a Texas steak”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

The Mai Tais were strong. The steak was ok, but the sauce was very tasty. I needed anything after an 8 hour flight, and it did hit the spot. For a resort steak, it was good. Just not a "if here you've GOT to order it" steak.
