The good: They've done a great job with the room remodel. d The new A/C unit works great. The beds are very nice and comfortable. I slept great. The oceanfront balcony is excellent. The in-room refrigerator is a lot larger than your standard apartment fridge. They don't offer any coffee in the lobby but they make up for it by giving you a 12 cup coffeemaker in your room.
The bad: They charge you a 100 dollar deposit up front just for staying there. The parking is free but it's across the street. Those lots are almost always full and hard to get into and out of. There's plenty of parking at their garage a little farther down the street. The room they gave us at check-in was directly across the corridor from the elevators, which means a lot of noise during the night. We asked for another oceanfront room and the staff was glad to jump on it right away. Within minutes we were in a quiet corner in room 1101. (I love watching the ocean from up there.) The refrigerator in our new room would only cool to about 50 degrees or so. We had milk and lunch meat and other perishables that we were about to lose. We called the front desk and they had a guy from maintenance in our room within a couple of minutes. He said the fridge had to be swapped out. Fortunately, they had a replacement available. It was delivered to our room after a little while. It worked perfectly. Funny thing, though. Whoever my wife talked to down at the desk said something to the effect that a refrigerator is "not for putting warm items in to make them cold. It's for keeping things cold that are already cold". Huh?? What about that un-refrigerated warm bottled water you buy at the store and put into the fridge to make it cold? A couple of other things: The concierge somewhat railroaded us into eating at a particular restaurant using a "they can work you in right now without a reservation" tactic. It wasn't that great at all. And the internet download speed at the resort is 1mbps. The upload speed is 20mbs. Other than all mentioned above, our stay was nice and uneventful.
