        Loved the gardens

        The inside was dark and old. Couldn't tell if it was very clean..it was too dark. The gardens were impeccable just wish the room had matched.

        cold shower

        I was attending a conference at the hotel. The room was clean and the view was nice. I got up the next morning to no hot water. I called the front desk and they sent someone over to investigate the problem but the problem could not be resolved for 30 mins. I ended up with a cold shower. The hotel did write of the parking charge for the 2 days.

        Te property is in an ideal location (across the street from the beach and backing the bay), has beautiful gardens and a great indoor/outdoor bayside bar and restaurant. Much within walking distance.
