Service is good, atmosphere is great--view of the ocean in an outdoor setting. Food for dinner offers a unique take on the ingredients used. The breakfast that is included with the room is very nice--lovey presentation with several choice.

Can't find fault with the service and delicious menu either! All meals prepared for our table were beautifully presented and a pleasure for the palate. The staff were exceptional, especially Gerald and Gerson!

The hotel is gorgeous - we only saw restaurant and patios. Food and service were very professional. Lovely. Would recommend a visit for a midday meal when you can enjoy the views.
