We stayed for 5 nights in the hotels 1 bedroom beachfront suite. The room was incredible. We preferred direct beach access off of our suite and fortunate got a ground floor suite. The suite on the second floor is identical and has a bit more privacy since you are not directly on the beach.If privacy is a main requirement, especially when using your private pool, request the second floor.
Each suite has its own private butler. Ours was Aliaume. He couldn't have been more polite, genuinely sweet and helpful. All of our request were handled quickly and without flaw. He was even able to locate our favorite wine to be delivered to the restaurant we were dining at that evening. The rooms were beautifully maintained as was the entire property. In the suite my only complaint was the bed. The bed had two twin size mattresses pushed together to make a king size bed. I prefer not having that opening between the mattress. The hotel will go through some renovations this coming season we were told and the name will change. The hotel was purchased by Louis Vuitton so I am sure any changes will be beautiful. All the staff was friendly and willing to help in any way they could. I look forward to my stay next year but wish it was not 360 days away.
