Pros: It was lovely overall. I think it may have just had a facelift having never been their before I'm not sure. But it turned out to have a modern, yet rustic charm. Rooms were large with large balconies. Pool area was small but nice facing an oak hillside. Breakfast was terrific with a lot of variety, fresh fruit and baked good. Nice touch. Walking trail nearby makes this place a great situation for a getaway.
Cons: Nothing really. Getting kicked out of the hot tub at 10pm when the kids weren't there, but that's standard practice for many hotels.
