Great room, mediocre service

I loved staying at the W but the service was ok. For a luxury hotel, you would expect speedier responses. I called for an electrician and it...

Definitely Different

Rating: 8

We arrived around 6:00pm on a Sunday in mid September. Other postings warned of a crowded venue later in the evening but our arrival time found only around a dozen. The fire pit was surprisingly large with generous flame and available seating. Certainly the sand underfoot is a nice idea and made for a relaxed atmosphere. For more romantic seating there are three booths along one side with flowing sheer drapes blowing in the breeze. The service was excellent, as would be expected with so few clients, and the drinks pricey, also as expected. With the description of rooftop I expected a view but in fact this roof was just second floor so no luck. The music was a nice background style and initially at a decent level with their sound system handling it well. Later, at around 6:40, really not very late, the music was turned up considerably and their system clearly on it's limit. I can imagine it not being too pleasant later unless dancing rather than talking was your priority. Almost overlooked might be the approach room downstairs, hyper-romantic with dim lighting largely by candles and candle lanterns and a black decor, definitely the next move after a fun dance session in the sand.

Sand, cocktails, music and a fire pit!

Rating: 8

I went here with my uncle and his date after dinner back in early 2002. We arrived fairly early, and we were able to get prime seating directly in front of their fire pit. The drinks were pricey but strong. The sand was a nice touch, and the background music was decent. As the night progressed, the place became crowded, seemingly beyond capacity. People practically fought for seating near the fire pit as the temperature dropped. I'd recommend this as a great place for after-dinner cocktails, but if crowds aren't your thing, then avoid the Beach Bar for late weekend evenings.

Fantastic, really unique environment.

Rating: 10

Warm sand a firepit make it really unique and a great place to hang out. And if the weather is not so great you can still enjoy the "Living Room" downstairs.
