"Great hotel, with price tag to match!"
The hotel is situated on wonderful grounds with very scenic views. The rooms are beautiful, very comfortable and kept clean with service twice a day. Checking in and out took longer that it should have, but we were able to get into our room earlier than standard check-in time, which was much appreciated. Vey nice gym/work out area with access to spa and various classes (yoga, hikes, bootcamp) held during the day.
The restaurants are nice, but quite overpriced for quality of food - I mean, for $9 cappuccino, I would expect would expect a true Italian drink. With a family of 4, we could not get out of any of the restaurants without leaving at least $150 behind. And the beach café charges 18% gratuity, even if you get your meal "to go". Also, we were informed that self-parking does now have daily rates, so no in/out privileges, which forces you to use valet parking for $40/day. Self parking was also full, due to events at the hotel. There is also $30 daily resort fee.
The beach is very nice and private, with chairs and umbrellas provided. Beach staff is very nice and helpful. Overall, I would definitely stay there again, just plan on eating in many nearby local restaurants.
