Great and beautiful with a caveat
The hotel is beautiful, as are the surroundings. The rooms are so nice, the bed was super comfortable, and our deck facing the pool and ocean made our time very pleasant. The front desk staff were very welcoming and friendly. Our only problem was the restaurant, specifically the bar. We were celebrating our 27th wedding anniversary and decided to have a lighter dinner and glass of wine early Friday evening, October 12. We walked into the bar and took a table. We were virtually ignored for many minutes. Finally we were approached by a waiter who took our drink order. We asked about the menu and he told us that our only option at that point would be the happy hour menu. The menu was rather small but we ordered a bowl of clam chowder and a Caesar salad each. When the bill was brought to our table after our meal we were surprised to see that we have not been charged happy hour prices, but full prices. That more or less added insult to injury, as he had told us that the happy hour menu was our only option. My husband flaggef down the waiter and he corrected the bill. The only bright spot in our evening was the blonde haired waitress who took our picture at our table when we told her that it was our anniversary. She even took another picture of us outside with the ocean as a backdrop. I wish we had asked for her name as she made our evening!
