This property, staff, location condos, pools, food, spa....is unsurpassed. I have travelled around the world and this property by far was the most beautiful place I have been. I used to think it was Cape Grace in Cape Town. From the moment we arrived until our departure the attention to detail was amazing and consistent, rarely can you find consistency from one day to the next, staff changes, chefs, housekeeping. They obviously have high expectations from their employees and it shows. If you have the ability to stay at this 5 star resort I encourage you to go. The Wagyu burger is a must.
My wife and I stay here almost every year. We have stayed at different times of the year. Each stay is always unbelievable. The pool area is separated very well between kids and adults. The view of the ocean is one of the best! One thing I have noticed in the reviews is the lack of mentioning the fitness center. I love to work out. The spa and fitness center have a great selection of free weights and machines for working out. They could probably add more weighted plates to their free bench but more reps is ok. The staff is of course what you would expect for a place like this, very accommodating and friendly. The residences are very nice and roomy. If you want to spend the money for a higher end accommodation, this is definitely a place you will want to try.
