This environmentally sustained boutique hotel was a sheer delight. The design of the former manor makes every spacious room feel private and it gave us the sense we were the only ones there. Our room overlooked a small courtyard/garden that was the home to several unusual birds - delightful. The restaurant sat in the middle of the hotel and had a charming outdoor courtyard section. Our food was excellent and the tres leches cake was like a slice of heaven! The wait staff were friendly and courteous and very helpful.
The friendly personnel, combined with the design of the building made me feel as if I had stepped back in time to a gentler era. Their efforts to make a minimal impact on the planet made it even more enjoyable. I loved this place and highly recommend it!
