The rooms are gorgeous; smaller but well appointed with top notch linens and mattresses. Views were spectacular.
No storage for clothes, ants in room, missed a day of cleaning after we were gone for 8 hours. Wouldn’t bring scissors to room. Nobody answered at room service for 5 minutes. Next time we tried room service food was brought; no cutlery. Cutlery came 25 minutes later and food was already cold. Still no soup spoon. Restaurant was average at best but still very costly. Manager did his best to alleviate issues but could only do so much. Just not the level of service expected from a resort of this cost.
Beautiful marina and harbor views
I liked the private beach area that faced the marina. There were comfy chairs around fire pits and cabanas to enjoy. The pool area was also nice. We loved the dive in movie and the complimentary popcorn and kids drinks. The restaurant, Vessel, offered us excellent food and customer service from server Matt H.
The parking. $27 to involuntarily valet park my car. We had to walk from the lobby to our room in the 4th building with all of our luggage and our toddler, only to find that the car got parked right outside of our room. There was ample parking in the lot, so the valet stipulation made no sense.
hidden resort fees
Construction and unhelpful staff causes issues
Construction at the hotel was not expected, and the hotel did not even try to make up for this fact. The hotel front desk was rather short with my friend who came to visit and asked if he needed to pay for parking. Even once the construction is complete, I would recommend against staying here. The way that construction was handled and the staff's attitude and lack of experience plays to the ultimate character of the management and ownership.
nice rooms but staff could use lessons
We liked the rooms and facilities (pool, marina side beach)
They tried to put us in a room with one bed when we booked a room with two doubles, we are a family of three and I refuse to put my daughter on a roll away, when we booked for two beds. The other people checking in at the same time we were also had problems with their accommodations.
