Amazing hotel

Fort Lauderdale

There was not one thing I could say that needed improvement. There was so much attention to detail. The staff were so professional and kind. The food and drinks were top quality and tasty. The view from the rooms were breathtaking. The pool was heated. Free snorkeling gear were provided if needed at one of their private beaches. What I truly loved the most were the many hiking trails and the turtles at the end of one of the hiking trails. It was an amazing and unforgettable experience.

Poor business practices

Lyons, Colorado

Our reservation was from 3/22/2020-3/26/2020, obviously during the Covid-19 crisis. Upon arrival, we realized many cancellations had been made due to the sparseness of visitors. We were given a room upgrade, which was appreciated, but mind you, all amenities were not provided with the upgrade, so not much of a big deal. My problem is the decision made by the owners to close the resort due to financial reasons because of the inability to fill the resort. We were given a phone call with less than 48 hours notice that we would have to vacate the premises and were given a number to a hotel in Honolulu to see if they had rooms available. Honolulu is at the time, the epicenter of the most Corona cases and practically on total lock down. This was a financial decision to close, not a state order. We had to ask for a pro-rated refund on the resort amenities fees, since so many offerings were not available. No discount on food, beverages or future visits for being kicked out and left to fend for yourself. These owners should reconsider being in the hospitality business, since they obviously are only concerned about their bottom line and not the hospitable treatment of their guests. They definitely dropped the ball instead of making a good lasting impression on how to treat your guests during a difficult time for everyone. I, among all other guests experiencing this treatment, will not be revisiting or recommending this resort in the future. Best of luck to the owners, the Blackstone Group, because they’re going to need it if they continue to do business in this fashion.

Let the children enjoy a fun fishing excursion where they can experience the gentle thrill of Hawaiian fishing. Plus, if they don’t catch a fish, you don’t pay! Serious fishermen and women may instead prepare the non-guided fishing option where the resort can drop you of at the special fishing site and pick you up at the end of the day.

Surf School

This stretch of coast, nicknamed ‘The Seven-Mile Miracle’ is set on the fabled North Shore, providing placid paddling, thrilling waves and challenging currents. Enjoy surf lessons and face the power of the ocean at this top surfing site.
