There was a lot of snow. All the roads and parking areas were plowed in the wee hours of the morning. I was impressed.

Beautifully positioned in the forest with overlook to the ocean. The beach is spectacular, the spa was serene and the room was just the right place to retreat to, fireplace and all. I would definitely stay again!

Stayed here for a pit stop with our kids. Have stayed before and was hoping to get oceanfront view and pay for ungrade, when we arrived we saw oceanfront suits were under renovation. And they had stuck us in a bungalo suit next to grotto, i didnt realize when booking that's where we would be. The bungalo suite seemed not very kid friendly, it had a murphy bed at the foot of your bed, was right beside the adult only grotto and it was extreamly far to walk to ocean. We were pretty upset and not wanting to stay. The front maganger made call.and we were able to upgrade to the cabins near the beach. Now those were much more suitable if your traveling with kids 2 bedrooms a nice cozy fireplace, super close to pool, easy walk to beach It was perfect and just what we needed originaly!! So overall our stay was great, a hickup in the begining made it an amazing stay the the night. We would come back to thise cabin suits or oceanview only And we will be more careful when booking.

I really enjoyed the facilities especially the spa. Loved that the property was a five walk to the beach. But our room needed some updating because it resembled my parents house in the 90’s. It was clean on the upside.

Considering the cost of the room - it seemed unreasonable that check-in was not permitted until after 5:00 pm and check-out was expected by 11:00 am. Our room was advertised as "ocean view" but was actually on the ground floor and had a view of a fence. No sign of the ocean. WiFi did not work. When we informed the manager, he was argumentative and unhelpful. Most of the staff were lovely but the manager had such poor people skills that we decided not to ever return to the resort.
