From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
This Tuscan-inspired oceanfront property has "beautiful, spacious rooms," decorated in warm earth tones, with marble bathrooms and oversized bathtubs. Service vacillates from "beyond efficient" to "subpar at times." Stonehill Tavern serves a contemporary American menu by Michael Mina listing items like Maine lobster, Berkshire pig, and California lamb chops. "The resort has an agreement with the tennis club across the street, but you have to pay for court times."
