The Cliffs Resort Review

Perched dramatically on an oceanfront cliff, this full-service resort is surrounded by lawns and palm trees; the pool, with a cascading fountain, overlooks the sea. Rooms have a thoroughly modern look and Spanish-marble bathrooms (some have hot tubs); the rooms facing the beach have wonderful views from their balconies. All the oceanfront suites were remodeled in 2013 and have custom glass and other works of local artisans. The pet-friendly rooms on the first floor have travertine floors and leather couches ideal for visiting dogs.
