The hotel was very cheesy - think Austin Powers movie, very 60's. That would have been fine if it weren't for the staff. They were rude, dismissive, and never smiled. We were told the first night that we couldn't have dessert with an after dinner drink on the balcony because the piano player was playing. OK, so we went to the store across the street and bught a bottle of wine for $10.00, sat on our large balcony and enjoyed the view. The hotel lost a lot of money on us because we would have bought drinks at an expensive price every night and would have had dinner at the hotel if we wernt treated so rudely.We were there for 4 days and never saw anybody at the bar or drinking outside with the piano player. I can understand why. We were shocked at the attitude of the staff. When we met the manager, we understood - think Nurse Ratchet!
I have to say that the views from the balcony were outstanding, one the best we have ever had. The balcony was huge and it was beautiful during the day and in the evening. If you don't mind rude staff, the ocean view rooms are exquisite. Personally, we would not return to this hotel.
