Editorial review:

This spot is amazing all the way through. The beach club is great, the service is impeccable, the rooms are luxurious, and there's a full spa and great golf. Critics dislike how the beach isn't off the premises. Most people praise this hotel, though.

                          I enjoyed that the location gave me a personal view of the ocean and the valued price was remarkable.

                          It was fantastic. The staff were extremely helpful and the location was perfect. The pool area was very relaxing, and the hotel was located in an area.
