Nice but a little threadbare

This was a very nice resort for golfers and business meeting types. The lobby was beautiful. The rooms were nice but not worth the money. The bathrooms were beautifully appointed with marble and were very big. The beds were very comfortable with lovely bedding. The rest of the room was rather standard (for a deluxe suite) and a few things needed attention. Some of the furniture was nicked up, and a few spots needed painting. The view outside was beautiful as it faced the harbor. But the grounds (other than the green and tees) needed watering (and weeding here and there) and the parking lot paving was dirty from construction vehicles nearby working on a new pool area. Again a few details could use some painting on the exteriors. The hallways were very nice with elegant carpeting and sitting areas with rockers looking towards the view. However for the money, the hallways were open to the air (making them hot and humid in the day), and the windows were trimmed in rough, cheap moldings - strange. We'd rate this as an incongruous stay. Very nice with some great creature comforts and staff, but a few things in the details ruined the overall effect.
