I tried so hard to be mad at this hotel because it was so expensive but it was honestly the best hotel I have ever stayed at, and I have traveled all around the world. The rooms were beautiful, the staff was incredibly welcoming, the food was out of this world, and the pool was next level. My kids loved it. Number one for me was probably how clean it was. Every inch of every room we went into was spotless. It was like we were the first ones to stay there. If you are thinking of going with this hotel or another one definitely go with this one. It might be a little outside of downtown Newport but it’s a 5 minute drive from everything, and they have cute little shuttle buses and complimentary bikes on site. And honestly you don’t even need to leave the pool area for an epic vacation it checks all the boxes.
