This IS a nice place to stay, love the openness of the overall hotel, especially the lobby areas.
Restaurants are 'OK', but I did not find anything particularly special about them.
I rate the rooms 4 for comfort, cleanliness and visual, but came away from this place with mixed feelings. They 'nickel and dime' you to death. Give marks for creativity as they find many ways to extract your hard earned 'coin' from you. Eg.-2 beers, 1 glass house wine....and the non-optional 18% gratuity (not 15), for a young lady to take it from point A 15 feet away from us, to our table,point B, at the outdoor bar.....$31.86....don't get an option on the service. Don't get too thirsty, you may be hitch-hiking home.
Breakfast buffet, nice, but $25.00 each, and of course, plus gratuity.
Wifi-free in the lobby.....costs you in your room.
It's not the amount of money you spend it's how they go about extracting it from you. There were other meddlesome examples but I've forgotten them...it was just annoying!
The grounds around the hotel are nice, and the view from the various terraces is very nice for sunsets.
