This is a rustic property, very serene, older crowd. Many return annually. We found the guests and staff pleasant. It was a treat to have the beach right outside our door; lovely sand and water. However it is slanted, soft sand, hard to walk on. The walking/cycling trail is very gravelly and muddy. These were major disappointments as we go away in Feb in part to exercise outdoors everyday.
Food at Sea Grape (main dining room) and Ismays (premium, upcharge but worth it) was quite good. Ismays is only accessible 4 nights out of 7, but at least you can reserve ahead of time so we were able to get in once. Gaugin, the third restaurant, had the most spectacular setting but very uneven food. Incredible spring rolls, yet tough, chewy marlin and flank steak. Mediocre desserts. And almost impossible to get a reservation - apparently you have to be standing at guest services at 6:55 AM daily to have a prayer of booking.
The resort prides itself on having gone paperless. But there’s not so much as a resort map in your room or on tv. We were not told about the daily new guest orientation at 10 AM - learned about it mid-stay. Why not also put the info in writing and laminate it for each room? Or put on TV? Hair dryers (theirs and ours) worked poorly - just not enough power) and internet was out all weekend in our room. We appeared to be the only guests who left the resort for any reason - nothing nearby, but we took a taxi to Cecilia’s, a terrific restaurant friends had recommended.
