What an absolutely wonderful experience...best food and service we have had in many many years. Layout of the hotel (the genius of 1920's architecture) provides proximity to everything (room with ocean view, Sbux coffee, shops, range of restaurant options, and cabana at the beach, spa with ocean view).
The rooftop massage was a delight to behold and the staff was superb...level of expertise was terrific...whole experience was a well-oiled machine “from one cloud-like experience” to the next.
Only negative was not the Don's service (although they allow it) but the Free Beach Ride (there's a reason it's "free", i.e. just tips) which we only used twice....but cab service is great. Recommended they drop the free ride service because transportation is an extension of the hotel's image.
In 10 days, no other issues arose to diminish our unique and wonderful time at the Don.
