2.0 Poor
Cons:Looks like a beautiful hotel, but they cancelled while I was halfway through a long drive to the hotel for a wedding. Had to turn around and come home and miss the event.
7.7 Good
Pros:We love this place! We came here last year and fell in love! Pet Friendly, right on the water, you get your own golf cart, and a decent restaurant with full bar right there! The rooms and view are the show stoppers! Wish it was a little more reasonable in the price but location location location!
Cons:Thing have changed since our last visit. The hotel and restaurant are undergoing a change of ownership and they have made some strange decisions. First they no longer offer golf carts for each room, complete bummer. It really was fun and a total selling point. They are still on site but just not in use. If they change it we would come back. Also the hot tub was out of service, by the sign for quite a while. For a chill coast a hot tub is key. The restaurant leaved much to be desired. Although we love the outdoor fire pit tables the menu was haphazardly blocked out by falling taped pieces of paper abs the food was not great. Don't really see the point of the sushi, it seems like if you did pizza, steaks, and a few fun Hawaii dishes you would make your life and food a little easier. Little things but it makes a difference when you are spending a $1000 for 2 nights stay.
7.1 Good
Pros:Location was fantastic. Very short walk on a private path to the beach. Close enough to town for shopping and running errands.
Cons:Room is incredibly small, even for just 2 people. Walls are PAPER thin! Not worth $1,000 for 3 nights!
9.7 Wonderful
Pros:Pool, location, room, atmosphere
Cons:Golf cart did not work on second day, reception area should be bigger.
