We had lunch here by the pool and it was delicious. Great grilled chicken wrap, nice frozen drinks, and a great view. Only complaint is that service is a bit slow.

We spent the day at the beach at the hotel and then stopped at Heston’s reef for some pina coladas and burgers before heading back to our room. Pleasant seating near the pool area. Burgers were delicious but took some time to get and were on the expensive side. Truffle fries and pina coladas were delicious as well. Service was pleasant but slow and hard to find for refills.

The "Heaton Burger" is quite excellent, and they have Guinness in nitro bottles, two of my favourites. Their prices are somewhat above average, but the views of the ocean are what make it a special place. Parking can be challenging as well, although there is valet parking available.

I love going here for the perfect view of the full moon, I've also been for lunch. Nice chicken salad with fruit. But I really don't love plastic cups, I get it, it's next to the pool, and if there is a band it's to noisy, but it's a fun place when it's quiet. I usually venture next door to Cobalt and sit by the fire pit if it's loud.

Class act ! From the moment we arrived until we departed. Visited on Saturday before Mother’s Day, welcome by valet with a smile and courteous greeting and he gave us directions to Heston’s , it is up a flight of stairs/elevator and then look for the beach. We were a party of 6 , very polite server greeted us and then ensured we had a table with an amazing view. We ordered a pitcher of Mojitos and never looked back (we had a DD) the apps were tasty, burger cooked med-rare perfect. Mahi fish was just right temp and flavor. Lobster tacos were good but a little over and the lobster was fried? Our server was very attentive to our needs and wants, she was awesome. Will return again. Keep up the great work, great team atmosphere !
