We stayed here at the beginning of November and the hotel was fine. The rooms are nice but we did not find the beds to be comfortable. It wasn't very relaxing to sit around the pool as there are dogs (not the 3 dogs who are at the hotel, they are very well behaved ) around the property that are always barking. The service was just fair at the hotel. We went each day to the beach property and they really could not seem to handle the number of people there and this was still off season. We had to wait one day for an hour and 20 minutes for the appetizers to arrive and after an hour, I said something. They said they were very busy but when I pointed out that the manager (I am not totally sure if he was the manager / director / or owner ) sat after us and but received his food well before us, they didn't have a response.
Besides the poor beds, the hotel was fine but I would not define it in any way as luxury.
