    Beautiful location with a breathtaking view of the ocean. Well appointed rooms with ingenious blends between indoor and outdoor living areas. Close to lovely local restaurants and walking distance to the beach. Next time we will stay longer!

    Luxury Escapes $399 package was good value. Our stay was very pleasant. Staff were uvery helpful. The wooden table and stools on the balcony were great for dining but two comfortable chairs in our balcony would be an improvement.
