Hotel incredibly designed, decorated, and naturally landscaped on top of a high elevation where you can see the ocean and lush vegetation of the hillside. The rooms were absolutely beautiful, clean and luxurious. I'm so grateful to Casey, Bill, and their entire staff for everything. This is destination is a must!
