Set in one of the most special environments in the Cape, Isola at One&Only is far and away one of my favorite summer time lunch venues. The service is beyond excellent, ditto the food and the ambience.

Over priced. Bad food. Non-existent entertainment and programming. Nice staff. Nice rooms and a boat ride that costs $300 each way to get to and from the island. There are many better places in this world that provide an honorable value proposition than this disaster.

Great Location. Exceptional service. Rooms extremely comfortable and all amenities of the highest standard. Everything we could of ask for and more in a 5 star hotel. Excellent breakfast at Rubens and the dinner was a gastronomical delight. It was a amazing weekend. A home away from home.
