Fodor's Review

Lawns and palm trees surround this full-service resort that perches dramatically on an oceanfront cliff. 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 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.
