    Sneaky charges

    Overall it was a nice resort with kind people. It is upsetting to have hidden resort fees in the final bill. The “resort” fee should be part of the room price, not separate. If the hotel is charging a separate fee per night, it should be based on use. We did not use any part of the resort; we only slept there. The additional charge per night was unexpected and a sneaky business practice.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Great location for a family and the room was very spacious for four people, but the beds, furniture and kitchen are very dated. It would be tempting to stay at a Marriott or Hyatt next time only because it might be more comfortable. That being said, it’s a great hotel and we enjoyed ourselves.

    Not worth the money

    Spa was nice and people were accommodating. Rooms not cleaned; tub drain stopped up; decor outdated and worn; grounds have poor lighting, almost walked into the coy pond.

    The resort has a prime bay front location. Across the street is the Pacific Ocean. Close to markets, food eateries, and bars. We walked everywhere. The resort has a tropical vibe with live birds, koi pond, and lots of greenery. We stayed in a garden studio with kitchenette (fridge, microwave, oven/stovetop). The room had a musty odor upon entering. Appears it needs a remodel from the furniture to the fixtures to the bathroom.

    The stay was fantastic. My only issue was you have to pay for parking even when your staying at the hotel- pricey! Atmosphere and staff were terrific and extremely attentive and accommodating! Would highly recommend!

    The hotel was a nice property and the outside ponds were even better but they charged a $35 a day service charge for maintenance of the property. I’ve never been to a hotel with charges an extra charge like that. Should’ve been in the original price at the time of booking.

    The resort grounds are beautiful- the location is amazing. We had a tower room and it is very dated. Bed and pillows not comfortable. Bathroom is small and tub has permanent stains, doesn’t drain well. The location and grounds are so wonderful that I would still come back but please give your rooms an update!

    We stayed here many years ago with our children & loved it… The lobby, pool, beach is beautiful! However, now the rooms need a MAJOR overhaul. And our room was dirty. ALSO, We were “kicked off the beach” at 4:24 pm on a weekday. My husband & I were asleep in beach chairs. They asked us to vacate the chairs, beach chairs were folded up, removed AND it wasn’t even 5:00 in the afternoon!

    Resort area was really nice. When you walked in, you were transported to a tropical island. However, the rooms are very outdated and in need of upgrades. We ended up not staying.
