We recently stayed here for 4 nights, and I've debated whether to give it 3 or 4 stars. It is a beautiful and charming hotel, with a lovely pool and excellent restaurant. We had a casita, which had a completely private patio with a jetted tub as well as a lounging platform with cushions. Taking a bath outside without the chemicals of a hot tub was wonderful! We also played a game of croquet which was set up on a section of lawn. The bed was exceptionally comfortable with luxurious linens. Now, for the quirks: The "high speed" wifi service was so slow that we gave up on it, using 3G instead. On our last day, the staff reported that they had been having trouble with it but it was fixed. It still did not work. There was not even one basic chair in the room. lf you wanted to sit down, the bed was the only option. The room was beautiful, but there was very little drawer space, so I ended up hanging some things and otherwise living out of the suitcase. The room safe did not work, and the towel rack fell apart. I asked for a postcard to send someone, and the staff member I asked said she thought they should have postcards, but they didn't. Then I asked if they could mail some postcards I had written, and they could only do that if I had my own stamps, so I was given directions to the post office. I just felt like this hotel could try a little harder. That said, we did enjoy our stay, with the caveats I mentioned.
