We are definitely coming back. We has great time, especially activities like kayaking and paddle boat. Nice pool and the rooms were great, too. Over all everything was 5star hotel. Lido public beach was beautiful as well.

Convenient location for our activities

Posted Jun 29, 2015
Pros: Cleanliness, location and accommodating staff.
Cons: Another chair and ottoman in room.
Location: Convenient to downtown and beaches.
Our room had a very nice view of a harbor. Room was clean and spacious enough to accommodate another club chair and ottoman. With another chair and ottoman I would have given room comfort a 5.

Nice but quite the distance from the beach

Posted Jun 16, 2015
Beautiful hotel. But wasn't expecting it to be so far from the beach. If you have your own car, that isn't a problem. And there is a shuttle that goes to the beach twice a day for free, but lido beach. Which, no offense, but kind of sucked. And then you're stuck there all day until the shuttle comes back. However. The facility itself was nice. The pool was the entire reason I booked the place and really cool. Staff was amazing and nice. Room comfortable, and balcony made it. It was hust unfortunate to be far from the beach. But..that's my own fault for not seeing that. Would expect a little cheaper of a price for not being beachside.

never go there again

Posted May 14, 2015
Pros: I did not like nothing at all
Cons: lower the rate. this hotel like any other hotel, no water view no luxury room
Location: close to the airport only
this hotel is expensive I reserve it so see the water I paid $350 for one night room. I end up with small room and no water view. they charge for water $4 and hotel fees $15 and valet parking $22 and there is no water view the bed not comfortable like it should be advice for ever person please check the room before you pay for it

Not worth the money.

Posted May 4, 2015
The rooms are wonderful and clean but the pool food, drinks and staff are sub par. The pool food was disgusting and the staff was terrible. Food and drinks took forever and when you finally received them it was mediocre at best. Very disappointing for how expensive it is. If you just need a place to sleep, great. However, if you're looking to stay at the hotel and relax by the pool I would suggest the Ritz next door. That's where we ended up going each day instead of our pool.

Best welcome from staff from any hotel we stayed i

Posted May 2, 2015
Justin on the main desk was extremely friendly and helpful. The foyer area was open and light and cold drinks were available to help yourself. The concierge was extremely helpful too and rung a restaurant for us on his own phone to make us a reservation. The room was clean with a lovely view of the wonderful pool
