This bed and breakfast inn is jaw droppingly beautiful. The grounds, the entrance, the rooms, the view, the veranda are all beautifully maintained and stunning. Our breakfast could not have been more tasteful. And yet something is missing here. The owners appear not to like their guests. It's a little deeper than reserved. I've dealt with smarmy innkeepers who won't let you be. This is the opposite end of the spectrum. The receptionist hurried off shortly upon our arrival and we were told the owners would not be seen until the morning. We were the only guests at the inn. There was no warm coffee for us in the morning. There was no lingering over the breakfast. No curiosity as to where we were from or our plans for the day. Service was prompt and polite and scripted, but conversation between the proprietor and his guests was not welcomed. When we returned in the evening there was no on to ask for wine glasses in our room. The innkeepers were gone with nothing but an emergency number to call. The note said no rooms were available though the place looked pretty empty. We felt fairly abandoned. This for over $400 a night!
If you desire a place where you will be left alone, The Palm Cliff House is for you. Yet it diminishes the pleasure of your travel experience a little to feel you are tolerated rather than welcomed. And that is why we won't be staying at this very perfect inn again.
