We had a nice experience at the Topside. The staff was polite and INCREDIBLY service oriented. Some of the guests struck us as rude or, shall I say, demanding, and the staff handled it all with exquisite courtesy. Their breakfast was outstanding. The room was okay not a wow but the experience was and level of service was truly outstanding....

Thank you for the great and informative review. We have continued to update and renovate the guest houses, insulating the leeward guesthouses so they should be nice and cozy this fall. We have also built new outdoor seating areas on the Windward guesthouse, making the covered porches a great place to relax and take in the view. Thank you again...
