My extended family spent the better part of a week at The Acqualina in November. It was our 3rd visit to the resort and it spoiled us again. I recognize that there are only 98 rooms at this resort, and that the resort was not at capacity, but there was no noticeable drop-off in attentiveness by all of the staff....

Everything about this resort is five star - it is a gorgeous property but it is the caring and attentive staff which elevates it to another level.
