In the new wing the rooms are...

The hotel has all th perks and is very well located. You will have a relaxing experience there and a comfortable stay. However it is not cheap and all the comfort comes at a cost. Still if you want to stay in the area I would recommend it.

Blew our idea of a "Best Western" right out of the water. Gorgeous location on the tip of the peninsula. We arrived right as the gorgeous orange sun was setting outside our balcony.
