This resort is really fantastic. The rooms and the service are just stellar. See my previous review for details. While there is some noise from the construction of the condo building, we could not hear it in our room and it did not bother us on the beach. We will definitely be back again.

It takes forever to get service at Costa Grill and they consistently screw up orders. We hope they seriously evaluate process in kitchen, service staff and work to improve. The spa, rooms, staff...

All that's left is that they can submerge this masterpiece under water (what's Acqualina mean in Italian, again?). The service was top-notch, as was the quality of our room, and, just overall, the stay can be summed up as magnificent. I'd recommend frequenting the Spa, or the ESPA -- great level of service. .

Best hotel. Perfect service. Excellent food. Friendly staff. It's not cheap. But worth every penny. My family visit this hotel 3-4 times a year. Early check in, no problem, just request it before. Valet parking works fast. What else do you need for the great stay?
