Highs & Lows

  • The staff always had smiles on their faces. They were extremely attentive without being overbearing. It seemed like they were having fun on the job.

  • On the Rocks Restaurant. It was a meal I will never forget in the most romantic setting! I felt like I was on ‘The Bachelor’…plus, the food & beverage director came over to our table and chatted with us, which I think is true hospitality!

  • Their in-bathroom products! They had avocado oil in the room, which I had never tried. I put it all over my body & hair everyday and now I’m converted!

  • There’s an Eden Rock platform in the middle of the ocean that you can swim to. It was so fun swimming out there and jumping off…you feel like a little kid.

  • Lounge chairs that are personally your throughout your stay take away the need to get situated every morning.

  • No hotel pool but some of the suites do have their own.
