In some respects, La Quinta Resort was disappointing. We spent 7 days there and this is a summary of what we found :
On the positive side :
- nice setting, plenty of space, well tended gardens
- abundance of pools
- large bedroom and a very well appointed bathroom.
- the lunch time menu in Twenty6 is good
On the negative side :
- limited choice for eating and drinking, made worse by the fact that some of the bars and restaurants are closed during the week. This falls well short of what is expected from the web site information. The staff could not give any information as to what was opened and when and the hotel TV information was not being updated.
- there is no buffet breakfast during the week and the buffet breakfast choice at the week end is extremely limited, though beautifully presented
- while we were there, the hotel was overwhelmed by large corporate events
- beware of the electric buggies cutting across the road, especially at night when they drive without lights.
In essence, we were expecting a different standard for a resort in the Waldorf Astoria collection.
