Great Hotel and Gorgeous Location
The views from the room were excellent - it helped that we had perfect sunny days in April but even in the rain this view would be impeccable. The room was great and the bed was very comfortable.

The view from the room was unbelievable. The hot tub was dated and restaurant on-site was closed. Rooms are large. Will need to come back when restaurant isn't closed.

So-So for me
This was a tricky one to review. I personally don’t believe the cost is worth the hotel. I got the premier suite and didn’t understand why two of the bedrooms and one of the bathrooms was locked in the suite I paid for., where I got the reservation said I would get three bedrooms and two bathrooms in the suite. I did ask the front desk personnel and he said the hotel keeps the other two bedrooms and one bathroom locked unless we have more than two people in our party, (but at that point the suite itself would cost even more). That seemed to me to be really ridiculous. I decided to go on and put in 4 guests, requested the same suite and it was THE SAME PRICE I paid, so the front desk personnel were dishonest with me. The fireplace is pretty much a joke, it’s a plug in fireplace that has an hour long timer. For the cost, you guys should be able to install a full fireplace. There is also not a full size kitchen, no oven, which I had been looking forward to so I could could breakfast. No breakfast at the hotel. The wonderful things about the hotel are the shower, it’s the best I’ve ever experienced. The bathtub on the deck is so wonderful too- even in the cold weather it is a good contrast to the hot water in the tub. The view is beautiful. The sounds from the ocean are wonderful in the relaxing tub. The bed is also really comfortable, but I prefer harder beds, it’s not super hard, but decently hard. I’m not sure if I would stay here again.
