Negative Reviews

It’s expensive

Ah, the price of luxury Luxury accommodations typically come with a matching price tag This hotel charges top dollar across the board: rooms, dining and spa services alike Be prepared to splurge during your stay.

Skip the garden views and ground floor

Since you’re already spending quite a bit booking your stay here, you might as well book a room with an incredible ocean view Past travellers have commented that if you really want to get the most out of your stay, you should avoid ground floor and garden view rooms.

Not family-friendly

Yes, this is an adults-only hotel, which can be a great advantage for couples and a total disadvantage for families However, there are plenty of family-friendly resorts in the area—this just isn’t one of them.
