    4/5 Good

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    Warm hearth/cold bed

    The suite was awesome and the bed may have been the most comfortable in a resort ever. But the bedroom and bathroom were freezing! We could not get the air off because the fireplace was heating the room with the thermostat. We could not get the fireplace to shut off so just turned off the thermostat. By morning it had finally warmed up. The check in staff was courteous and efficient.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    It was beautiful in a great location. But overall it was kind of just okay. The 'nicest' restaurant on site did not have good food. Not many choices, some of them including potato chips as the side, and what we did have (soup de jour -- mushroom) was way too salty. Reminded me of eating at Red Lobster.
