The location of the property was excellent. The view of the harbor, and the sunsets were amazing. It was also walking distance to several fine dining options. Parking was covered and free, and no additional resort fees yet all the amenities.

Noisey
Very noisy room, many rooms in the place left but gave us the room next to lobby. Lobby was loud, shrieking guests at 5am. Could hear both loud staff and patrons clearly we'll past 10pm. Shower was pathetic with little pressure, bathroom overall very dark. Def room for improvement all around.

Fantastic view, and very well kept. I would have giving 5 stars BUT on the last night when we returned to our room at 7pm there was a party going on in the courtyard next our patio. This included a 5 piece rock and roll bar band. And it was LOUD. With the windows closed and the air conditions on it was still louder than the TV. I went to the front desk and asked about it and was told "This happens every Thursday night and it is our policy to inform all of our guest via phone ahead of time about the event." I was not informed because if I had been I would have made other arrangements for that night. (No other rooms were available on the property. It is unacceptable for a hotel to inconvenience their guests for hours with such an event so close to their room.
