It was wonderful from the first moment. The staff was friendly and welcoming. Our room upgrade exceeded my expectations with a exceptional view, spacious room and a freshly made sumptuous cheese tray. We had two meals in the hotel, one outside enjoying the view and the other during the evening inside where our waiter advised us on choosing our meal. Sometimes there are so many possibilities honest help makes a difference. I look forward to staying there again.

For breakfast they didn’t have the kind of yogurt that is best for my diabetes. They scurried around and found some from the pastry chef

Ultimate luxury with a personal touch!

The hotel is perfectly located on the water, and offers the most luxurious accommodations. But what makes this a truly exceptional hotel is the staff. The people are professional and offer sincere personal interest in their guests: Susan in the dining room; William the doorman; Joseph at the bar; and Dave the chauffeur ALL are always attentive, helpful and exceptionally personable!
