Had lunch here and it left a lot to be desired, The hotel rooms were so so. We took a full corner ocean view , in the Palm Tree tops. The lobby is gorgeous , along with the views. Only stayed once. Was not as pleasant as we liked.

The restaurant has a terrace with a beautiful view of the ocean and you can enjoy a spectacular sunset while sipping one of the wonderful local wines. Our waiter was exceptional and brought me a blanket since it got very cold once the sun set. The clam chowder appetizer is very large and incredible. I could have made a meal... More

Marisol lives up to its name - The Sun and The Sea. The views are absolutely stunning and the restaurant offers a wrap around, outdoor patio and casual bar seating as well as a more formal restaurant. We shared some excellent plates - Chili Lime Tacos, Chicken Lettuce Wraps and Calamari - all prepared and presented with great taste. The... More

We love going to The Cliffs for a meal, drinks or just to relax. The brunch menu has always been great but lately we have noticed that the quality has definitely deteriorated. Service is great. Everyone tries their best to accommodate the guests' needs but they really need to upgrade the quality of their food. Can't beat the mood or... More

We were there to celebrate our oldest son's graduation with all of our immediate family, 8 adults and our 15 month old grandson. Late Saturday afternoon we were discussing dinner options when our daughter mentioned a friend recommending the Sea... More

For dinner fish tacos had a great combination of flavors, but too much fish that was over cooked, dry and not edible. The cocktails were an adventure! Breakfast the following morning of waffles with strawberries is one of the best waffles I have had in a LONG time!

We thought this spot would afford beach views as it is right on the cliffs, but you have to go outside to see it. The bar was packed with all the Sunday games, but the food was delicious at very affordable prices. Would definitely come back here.
