Food at the restaurant was burnt and had to send a k. Also overcharged on dinner. Bed was hard but some people might like it. I prefer a plush bed and typically get it at upper end hotels like this.

Rooms were beautiful, location was perfect. My complaints were the wifi was terrible😡Couldn't get/make any calls. Room service was not the greatest. I called the restaurant several times asking for there breakfast menu. They would txt me the lunch and dinner and not the breakfast. it's was annoying. Finally someone told me he would take it up personally.

This is a beautiful property, with winning views of the beach just across the street and is convenient to downtown SB. The valet staff is great, and very helpful. Unfortunately I experienced a very displeasing incident with the reservations manager as well as extremely poor service from the front desk assistant. They created a severe issue with my reservation without attempting to contact me in advance, and were disturbingly slow to attempt to remedy the issue even after having to admit fault after a pressing discussion. It was so very unfortunate and frankly leaves me unable to trust the hotel again nor recommend it - which is a true shame given how beautiful the property is. Hope they can remedy their internal protocol but sadly I left with the lasting feeling of having been scammed and incredibly inconvenienced on what should have been an easy, beautiful trip.
