The hotel was decorated for the holidays on the day we arrived and looked spectacular so I had visions of family photos dancing in my head. However, by the next day, when we were cleaned up and rested, they were taken down by the time we arrived in the lobby (12/28). Wish I had asked because it was stunning. But the property, fitness center, adult pools (we did not use the kids, but it looked equally wonderful), and lobby and common areas were absolutely wonderful. The spa has a lovely sitting room with herbal teas and complimentary breakfast. Walking paths offer a wide range of terrains (many off the property). Given the crispness of the evenings, the fireside couches on the balcony were a welcome respite. We also used the game rooms and those were nicely maintained as well. One day was warm enough for poolside lounging, and Austin was an attentive and friendly server. The pool was lovely, and our view of the horizon allowed for a peaceful and rejuvenating afternoon. I would definitely return to this property but with nut allergies in the family would ask they rethink mixed nuts on the tables.
