My wife and I wanted a weekend getaway and we had a great time. We rented bikes there and was able to walk out to the beach several times. At night, we laid in the hammock. Beautiful grounds and staff are very friendly. The onsite restaurant was not that great.

I visited the resort over the weekend and it is a quite lovely. The pool is beautiful and the beach access is worth the price of the room.

Perfect! We stayed at the Sonesta for our wedding, getting married directly next door at the beach club. The staff and hotel management could not have been more accommodating and sweet to us and our guests!

Room AC internally set no matter the temperature on display unit. Room was warm and uncomfortable especially during bedtime. seems like a corporate decision to save on electrical expenses at the comfort of guest. Becoming industry standard, unfortunately.
