Jennifer at check in was extremely nice. We were able to upgrade to a cabana room at an excellent rate. Our room was immaculate. Great view of the pool and The beds were dreamy! The bartender acted like we were an inconvenience. He wasn’t very friendly and our first round of drinks weren’t good at all! We had the cheeseburger which was delicious (and I’m not a burger fan usually). We decided to come back for dinner. Same bartender but he did make a fabulous dirty martini. We were disappointed with the dinner menu. It was all very heavy food. We wanted something lighter we could snack on while sitting in the lounge. They need to add better late night items for those who don’t want a heavy full course. The pool was very quiet and serene. Our server was so friendly but she didn’t know how to pour a mimosa. Over all this is a great hotel for couples and those who don’t want a party scene.

The grounds were beautiful, the views were absolutely gorgeous! The room was great as well, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The Short Golf course was very beautiful and peaceful. The only thing we noticed that could use some work were the patio furniture and pool lounge chairs, some were stained and just looked like they needed a good cleaning or to be replaced. Other than that, fantastic stay and would definitely return!
