My husband and I had a top floor mountain view room. It was a beautiful view especially since the sun rises right over the mountain, and there was usually a full rainbow over it in the afternoons. The wall of windows that separate the patio from the living room complete folds back to bring the outside in! It was a lovely surprise. The only downside is that even though we weren't directly facing the construction (thank goodness!) we could always hear the work going on if we opened up the patio. I'm sure the ocean and courtyard view rooms are great because the hotel is beautifully landscaped, but I liked the privacy of the mountain view.
After some of the reviews I read, I was prepared to be disappointed by the beach, but it was great. Yes, it was rocky in parts, but there was a good amount of sand. You do have to keep an eye on where you place your feet and not kick too deeply. I only snorkeled, so it wasn't an issue. The snorkeling off the beach was better than the excursion we paid for! A rainbow of fish and a variety of sea urchins and coral.
