You might think that isn't a real reason for staying at a hotel, but I can tell you that the first impression makes a big difference and this hotel has a positive impact from the moment you walk in the door. The front desk staff are professional and friendly. As you make your way to your room, you are greeted by high ceilings in the lobby and a Koi 'river' running through it. Tropical and native plants abound. The whole feel is one of serenity and in the evening, the lighting is beautifully done. Breakfast was included and made to order eggs, pancakes and French toast were a nice touch. Maria, the line cook, is spot-on on her delivery of the orders; always smiling and willing to have a quick chat before she makes the next order. In the late afternoon, there is a manager's welcome, where drinks and snacks are available from 4:30 to 7:30; wonderful. The pool is large enough and there are plenty of lounge chairs and table and chairs. The hot tub also has seating around it. The suites are large and the bed comfortable. Some rooms have balconies looking over the pool area. I highly recommend this hotel. You won't be disappointed.
