Great Hotel, Great Beach
Posted Jul 31, 2016 on Orbitz
I arrived at the hotel last week with my boyfriend. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous, modern and chic. The beach area is amazing! The hotel was at max capacity when we were there so you had to wake up early to grab a Bali bed, but there were plenty and we had one everyday. You also need to make reservations the day before, and again I recommend doing that first thing. As long as your proactive and aren't sleeping in till noon you will have no issues.
We absolutely loved the food. If anyone says it's bad, don't believe them. The breakfast buffet had two Omelette stations, fresh waffles/pancakes/crepes, and a smoothie/fresh juice station (In the back) in addition to other fresh buffet staples. The lunch options are the Water Grill or Beach House. We liked Water Grill better, it was more of a sit down lunch. The pasta was great, and even as an Italian-American New Yorker I was pleased! Desserts were also fantastic, try the chocolate burrito or mango sorbet. For dinner, be sure to make a "regular" reservation at Silk AND a Hibachi reservation (they call it Teppanyaki). We actually overheard a guest say the food "sucked" and couldn't wait for "normal food" and named a cheap fast food chain. So maybe if you prefer junk to good fresh food you'll have an issue, but everyone else should be fine.
Hotel was quieter at the start of the week (couples, low-key groups). Had a bit of "the drunk train home from Penn" feel by Friday. Also, we were woken up a few times by drunk guests.
