We stayed in one of the 'cheap' butterfly rooms. It was outstanding. The first day we arrived it was cold and foggy. No worries! We started a real wood fire, got our complimentary hummus and crackers out, opened a bottle of wine, and put our feet up. Very nice. The room was very private. We were shocked the next morning when the fog lifted to see we were looking at a mountain. Beautiful.
We hiked trails, saw deer, visited the infinity pools, watched dolphins and whales... What more could you want?
Service was impeccable.
The only flaw was the restaurant. It just really wasn't very good. They only offer a tasting menu for lunch and dinner, and it just didn't hit the mark. Very expensive and not very tasty. We're from the Chicago area and love good food. I've read complaints about portion sizes, but they were as expected from a tasting menu. It just didn't taste very good. Room service was better. Breakfast was good. Lots of fresh fruits and veggies.
The bar was great.
We'll be back. I see from other reviews we aren't the only ones who didn't love the restaurant, so hopefully they will change things there. If that happens, I'll be hard pressed to complain about anything.
