On the water with views is the only good thing I can say about Danfords. Food is below average...prices are high. My friend and I ordered the chop salad and it was suppose to have cashews and edamame but did not! Waiter was a young fella and was very nice but didn't do anything about it..just smiled and said oh... More

We had my family graduation party here and we were all very excited. Family from all over came. The party was great the food was great but the vale service was terrible! Our guests had to wait 20-45 minutes after they handed in their ticket stub for their car. The staff did not care about this at all. I waited... More

Everything went wonderfully! The brick walkway for the ceremony, stunning... Flowers everywhere, cute small village feel. The waiters were polite and worked their butts off. The butler passed hors d'oeuvres were delicious. We did the buffet menu for salads/entrees and they were also delicious. Assorted desserts instead of a wedding cake was amazing! Guests got to try everything and loved... More

Stayed here in April to attend family wedding. I will summarise this hotel. The location is superb. That's it. Business walks in the door so they do not have to work on any standard of customer service. Staff on reception had an attitude and there was no professionalism. This summarises my experience: Trouble with key cards for the rooms on... More

A very nice and authentic hotel, nicely located at the waterside. The rooms were clean and very well sized. The only pity was that my room was located on the opposite side of the street from the main building, in a kind of annexe. The bar and the restaurant are very nice, the barman was very friendly and the food... More

Outstanding experience. Staff was attentive, the room beautifully done, the food magnificent. Guests were saying during the evening and next day how great the food was and how beautiful it was overlooking the water. I would highly recommend for a special occasion or a get away. The banquet manager - Vicky Castillo was excellent, and worked with us with a... More

I would just advise guests who are looking for a quiet good night sleep that this hotel had a number of issues. Our room faced the street so we had noise from traffic, the AC didn't work, and we heard footsteps/noise from every room near us. If you're planning a trip - I would speak to the hotel first to...

Despite the looks, this is not a particularly good hotel. On arrival, after checking in I had to drag my luggage along the parking lot to get to my room - nobody offered to help. My room was spacious and clean, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was ok. However there were some drawbacks and problems; half of the... More
