Great stay for solo females
Comfortable, ease, safe, secure stay as a solo female traveler. Also, beautiful, well designed and luxurious stay. The restaurant made accommodations for my friend and I to seat us early for dinner since we drove 5 hours from the last hotel. He stayed elsewhere. They went above and beyond for service.

8/10 Very good

Nice hotel
It was a good hotel with very kind and friendly service and the room was also beautiful, but I think the management needs to improve some things. We didn't have bottles of water, room service, coffee maker, glasses and bathrobes. Although the hotel was not cheap not to have such basic things, so to match level I think you need to work on these things. But the service was very good and the room was also beautiful.

Beautiful place to relax
This is a magical place and although the hotel was fully booked it never felt crowded. We ate in 4 different restaurants and had no trouble getting a table. We did pay to use the beach club which is right next store (1 minute walk) and has 3 pools overlooking the ocean and bar service. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. There are beautiful apartments right next to the hotel as well which are a great option for families. We plan to come back.
