Not Your Standard Block of Boxes
Posted May 27, 2012
A very different hotel with each of it's rooms being it's own little "casita" and the casitas grouped together in clusters on the grounds. I was visiting for a wedding, not a vacation, so I went with one of the lower priced rooms. The room was an adequate size and clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was large enough, clean and had all the basics. The room had two levels, with the bed and bathroom on one level and couple steps down to the sitting/TV/patio level. I really enjoyed the room's private patio. Sitting on it at night emphasized one of this hotel's real advantages, it's quiet ! There's no road or traffic noise, only the hum of some of the other rooms air conditioners. However, this room's AC could have been a little quieter. The grounds are landscaped nicely with mostly native plants and it's a pleasant, but not short, walk to the on-site restaurants. The free continental breakfast was basic with cereal, bagels, danish, fruit, etc., but the seating in the restaurant where they have it offered nice views of the golf course, the pool, or the mountain that the hotel is built against. The major drawback that some might find for this hotel, would be the distance and steepness of the walk from the parking areas to most of the rooms. If walking isn't a problem, there are actually some hiking trails that start at the hotel are good for a morning walk #but take a lot of water !#. I will definitely stay here when I visit the area again.
