What an interesting hotel on a reserve on top of a hill with beautiful vistas. We upgraded from a small studio with no view to a 2 room Suite 232, which was beautiful, including its own balcony with fan and a view. Staff we're very helpful. The shuttles up and down the hill were convenient. The restaurant was excellent, including the a la carte breakfasts. Even the 3 person musical group was friendly and fun.
Be careful with taxis and get the rate beforehand. One guy charged us $20 for a short ride and the return taxi charged $8.
The pool and outdoor food/ drink service, overlooking the ocean was also relaxing. And breathtaking. Say hi to the iquana.
Disappointed they did not add points to iPrefer acct with first stay enrollment, as promised.
