Staff was rude. Help gathered and chatting in the hall most the time. My rum dudnt get cleaned. Front desk left chat without a word.. disappeared. Wantv to desk said he had to do somthing.. how rude is that? Internet is AT&T and patchy..slow compared to the hotell chain down the road.

Great staff, nice location

This hotel is advertised as a resort, but to my knowledge only has a fitness center and outdoor pool (with hot tub). Halls are carpeted and keep the building quiet at night, but it's hard to pull a suitcase on the carpet. On-site restaurant - high prices, average food. I was not thrilled with the menu or food quality. There is room service. The hotel is in 2 connected buildings, and to get from the lobby to the 5th floor (2nd building) requires quite a hike and 2 elevators. So if you have trouble walking while carrying your luggage, try to get a room in the front building. The hotel has a forest on the back side, which is pretty. Staff is helpful and responsive. Bed and bedding is very comfy, and some of the pillows appear to be goose down.

Best hotel nestled in the woods

This hotel is so beautiful, & their rooms are large, clean. The front desk staff make you feel like part of the family, & give the best service. Krishan, & Jean are the best!
The pool, & spa sit on a hillside, & make you feel like you are in a private resort.
The drinks at the bar are delicious, & so is the food in there restaurant. I can’t decide what I like most. We will come to this hotel whenever we find availability.
