The ocean front rooms were lovely but hotel sits on a busy highway and it is very noisy. The Leopard Bar was a huge disappointment since they were not preparing any suchi items the entire time we were there--4 days. Restaurant prix fixe was a little boring. Spa was great. Staff was very friendly.

Not impressed. Service slow and half hearted, not a great selection. Took my friend for her birthday, stafd seemed more interested in each other than servicomg customers. Mount Nelson sets the standard in hight tea, 12 apostles doesn't compare
