Beautiful hotel and helpful staff, especially Ashley and Corey from Stonehill Tavern. They made our private dinner absolutely perfect! The resort has terrific views, is very clean, and everyone there is smiling.

Excellent customer service! We stayed For a corporate event in early April and Felipe waited on our table each evening. He went above and beyond to make sure we had a fabulous experience! And, although it was a large crowd, he remembered my personal preferences each night!

Awesome property with a great golf course. Amazing restaurants and very well presented large spacious rooms. Only disappointment is the beach!! There is literally none... the nearest beach is a 2 mile walk and unfortunately in my short two day visit for a Confrence, I could not do the trek!

Wow! First and foremost this is a beautiful resort! Never been in the area before, but I can't imagine that there is a better spot in this area. The people are amazing. In particular, Mateo and Meghan at the pool bar are outstanding. They keep their poise no matter how busy they are. They remember everybody's name. And most importantly,...

Our family enjoyed a wonderful 5 days here. Our children loved spending the day at the beach and playing in the pool. The hotel staff was great!

We went to this resort for a couple days and enjoyed it immensely! The description of the rooms was good EXCEPT for one item. It stated there was a private beach entrance, which is true but they made it seem like it was from the room. The beach access is a 4 minute golf cart ride from the hotel, which...
