I went with my boyfriend a few days ago to have late afternoon drinks, relax on the pool and have some dinner. the place is indeed amazing with a beautiful view, the waiter and bartender where lovely, but our evening was completely ruined by one of the owners, Heidi, at first I couldn’t believe this woman was the owner, she was the most unpleasant and rude persons I’ve ever seen. We got into the pool thinking we could open an account directly on the pool bar, as it turns out you’re supposed to open it on the outside bar, but instead of explaining this, as a good host should do, she had the worst reaction, completely rude, very offensive in her treatment and even started shouting at us at one point. Talk about mood killer!!

Clearly we didn’t stay for dinner, and is such a shame cause the place is completely beautiful and the rest of the staff is very nice.

My only recommendation if you go to this place is to avoid this woman in order to have a pleasant time.

We stumbled upon this restaurant and decided to dine here. We were not disappointed! Expensive menu but totally worth it. Fresh seafood and impeccable service. Very romantic and beachfront. The property was gorgeous. Private and secluded

This restaurant / lounge/ pool happy hour has a different thing going! Super cool place to see the sunset! Have some good drinks, they make great fresh piña coladas and margaritas, and have a really good steak! You can eat there or not.... we did and it was awesome! Choice of chicken, ribs, fish or steak.... yummy! All BBQ STYLE with baked potato and salad bar! Cheers!
