Is there a beach or access to the water within walking distance? It looks like the hotel is near the water, but is that a cliff?
Yeah, I would have emailed them, but I can't seem to locate their email. I wonder when that beach you mentioned will be finished.
Hi. You cannot walk to the beach from the hotel because the beach area is yet-to-be developed at the foot of the cliff. Once that is open, it will be a walk and it looks like it will be totally awesome and unique, like the hotel. I know that there is a shuttle to town where you can access the beach club associated with the hotel and the public beach (if you do not feel like sitting at the hotel's beach club). The shuttle makes it easy to get to town. When I was there, the weather was not really conducive to sitting on a beach so I did not test the system. But the water looks clear and blue, and I am a swimmer, so I feel like I missed something. I think that I need to go back. LOL
I would email the hotel to ask about shuttle service.
