8.0 Very good
Pros:Beautiful grounds & landscaping Friendly staff Comfy bed
Cons:Valet parking only No golf cart shuttle to beach, it was a very hot walk back up the long hill Not enough shaded areas poolside
2.0 Poor
Cons:First of all, I waited for a long time before somebody answered the phone, 15 minutes, to be exact! I called the hotel a couple of days prior to my arrival to check if they have shuttle service to/from the hotel and I was advised that they do not have shuttle service at all. I can’t believe a 5-Stat hotel don’t have shuttle service for their guests & that they don’t have a live person answering the phone right away. Furthermore, the person I spoke with was not friendly nor helpful at all! And because I was already not getting any good service over the phone, I decided to cancel my reservation!!!
7.4 Good
Pros:beautiful suite
Cons:small, almost unreachable beach that was a long way from the hotel
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:We went on our honeymoon and had a great time. Nice and private
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:Amazing service
