The food was amazing. The mystery weekend was run really well and was a ton of fun. Lovely place to stay - the rooms and antiques made the place look very posh, not dated. The staff was so helpful and friendly,

I stayed in the San Miguel room in the Thomas House. Slept like a rock! Electrical outlets are scarce, as would be expected in an OLD house. Linens are fresh, breakfast was super. Staff is like family.

Hot and humid down here. There is a good possibility of showers. Hope your facility is indoors with air conditioning.
