Poor1.0 / 5
Disappointed
Awful suppose to be smoke free and yet people broke the rules around our room!! Told the desk but it continued. Outside was a joke too many kids in spa and screaming! I was told it was 5 star. They offer nothing extra for the price you pay. Over priced and over rated! Will not ever go back.

Good3.0 / 5
Not impressed at all
Very overpriced, called resort while does not have even breakfast or at least coffee, small room, staff informed us that whale watching companies misinformed U.S. and there are no whales in the area . We still took a boat trip and saw number of whales including blue whales. Area around hotel is very restricted and thre is no way to park there before you check in. So we had to look for parking spot over 5 blocks away and walk to the hotel to get ticket to park closer. Building of hotel keeps beach near hotel Hal's a day in shade.

Excellent4.0 / 5
Initially, we were not happy with the suite we had reserved. We were with our 90plus year old mother and it was too far from all the amenities for her to get to. The front desk was so accommodating to get us in a better location and actually worked with us so that we could have connecting rooms instead of the suite. I can't say enough good things about the quality of service we received from the front desk, the concierge service and the pool services. We had a wonderful experience from all employees. What a pleasure! I understand that the hotel is going to go under renovation, which it needs. There was not one comfortable chair to sit on in the rooms and not all the rooms have a wide open view to the ocean...which is a shame. Hopefully, in the renovation there are plans to correct the view situation and furnishings in the rooms. We will be returning to this hotel in the near future as we love the location and the friendliness of the staff.
