While every property needs general ongoing maintenance, and also requires major work every so often, the work being done in the Beach Front Tower, while choosing to still offer rooms in that building, at full price, is not appropriate. The overall property is fantastic. It certainly deserves a 4 or even 5 star rating. But while Major work is being done, and charging top dollar at the same time, is not acceptable. They did manage to get the audio/music back working at the pool/outside areas, and that helped dull the noise outside. I will say that after speaking, kindly, with the front desk manager he managed to move us mid-way thru our 8 night stay to a room in the Beach Building and apply what I considered an appropriate credit to our account. They do need to consider occupancy of the Tower Rooms while this work is done, many many other guests had the same complaint, and clearly they could not move everyone to one of the two other buildings.

The entire experience from making the reservation to checkout could not have been better. Excellent staff and amazing location. Senior managers were out and about making sure everything was up to par and any guest or staff concerns were addressed.

Had my husband's 50th birthday party here and had dinner outside at Baleen! Perfect service, food and setting! We will be back! Chris our server, Aleksandra our hostess and Elena Grayson our manager were all lovely to work with and we are counting the days when we can return. Thanks so much for a great weekend!
