This is a great five star hotel, and I appreciate the beautiful buffet breakfast included with the room charge, which five star hotels often do not allow. The receptionists were efficient, if stuffy; and housekeeping was excellent. We had a full suite with east-facing ocean...More

I sadly do not know when the hotel will finish their renovations. The Four Seasons Hotel chain has taken over the hotel so I suggest you contact them. Best of luck!

Hi, I agree the restaurants apart from breakfast are formal and lack buzzy atmosphere that kids like. there are so many good places to find in the town, you will want to wander out each night/lunch.

Their drinks bar is expensive. I did say don't go if you can't afford it. Just enjoy the scenery and eat and drink elsewhere because it will be cheaper. Anyway I hope you enjoyed your stay.
