I have stayed at this hotel a number of times over the years and am aware of their recent financial troubles.

If seascapes talk to your soul, this is a heavenly conversation. Absolute views over an endless ocean, topped with in-room dining of your choice is an adventure in luxury. Beautiful rooms - the suites on 11th floor are fabulous - create memories of future returns. As a return guest over many years, it keeps improving and remains a highlight. Highly...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. It is unfortunate that you had such an experience.
