Definitely not worth the $ we paid. Zero room service. No cleaning of rooms. Had to go to front desk to get towels, coffee etc daily. Their excuse was Covid. View from the room was nothing special There are much better hotels, cheaper and better views.

Unwelcoming resteraunt
Our rooms were spacious and had a gas fireplace and an ocean view. The hotel resteraunt was in a separate small round building at the top of a hill. We walked up to it and stood in line outside in a cold wind to get in due to limited seating. Someone in line asked if they could get something to go and we're told in a huff that they could barely keep up with the people seated. A table for two came open the group in front of us said they could use that table if they could pull up a couple of chairs. They we're told that wouldn't be allowed and we're asked to leave for asking so many questions.
