Oh Hi, Ojai :)
Posted Jul 25, 2016
Let me begin that by being an Expedia Gold+ member, I received a FREE room upgrade. My standard room was upgraded to a larger suite with a fireplace at the end of the property.
Check-in was smooth and Wen was delightful. A folio with maps, activities, and such was handed to us.
The bellman guided us by golf cart as I drove our car to the lower lot, where he gracefully unpacked our car and drove us to our room (774).
The room was big, decorated in southwest/mission style and they provided us a fridge/microwave as we requested earlier. Everything was spotless and comfy with no complaints from the wife an I. Upon looking at the nightstand, the hotel room director had left us a box of fancy chocolates and a hand written envelope congratulating us on our soon-to-be baby. That was a nice personal touch.
The grounds are beautiful considering the age (hence the 4 star for condition), the golf course amazing, the spa/pools on point, and the food well executed. The resort is pretty large, so either use the free golf cart shuttle service or borrow a bike, unless of course you prefer to walk the hilly area (which is what we mostly did). Rabbits, deer, hummingbirds, and scrub jays frolic about, too.
The BEST part of this place is the SERVICE! Workers often refer to you by name and treat you with the utmost respect. There are a lot of workers, and you'll see them whizzing by on golf carts from sunrise to sunset.
