Concierge.com's insider take:
Tucked away amid the hedgerow-hidden mansions a little ways out of town, this 210-room property provides all the pampering you'd expect from a luxury resort, from the warm smile of the valet to the ever-present pool attendants who bring chilled facecloths to your side while you sunbathe. Nearly every room has a generous ocean view, and there are lush gardens and AAA Five Diamond dining. The Spa offers extensive traditional and contemporary services, either in-room or on-site. Championship golf at nearby courses, three tennis courts, fishing and water sports, and a heated freshwater pool with cabanas are among the activities at your beck and call. Good news for families: Children under 18 can share the room for no extra charge. The supervised Kids for All Seasons activity program is available for children under 13, and teens have their own game room. Not as old-school grand or as conveniently located as the Breakers, but a good choice for the chintz-phobic, and the concierge service is exceptional.
