Great Hotel, Bad Location. Jun 29, 2011
I had to stay at this hotel for a work conference and was there an entire week.

The hotel, in general, is exquisite—everything you would expect from a luxury hotel. The rooms were perfectly clean and the bed was beyond comfortable. My room had a great balcony that let in just the right amount of light, and the bathroom made me want to make a few renovations when I got home.

There were a few problems with this hotel, though.

It's not on the beach. To get to the beach, you need to take a shuttle.

There's barely anything else around. There were just a few restaurants within walking distance, and they close very early. The streets were eerily empty.

There's not a single convenience store close by, and the hotel doesn't offer anything of the sort. There's a gift shop, if you need a spare bottle of bvlgari cologne. But, if you need a stick of deodorant or would like a bottle of gatorade, you're out of luck.

That brings me to the food. Simply put, it's overpriced. I don't mind spending $30 on breakfast, but it better be something better than a diner.

Overall, this was much better than spending a week at a courtyard Marriot, but if I was traveling for pleasure, I would pass over this place.

A little pricey, but you get what you pay for. Awesome beach club house beautifully located on the beach. Can't wait to go back again!
