My Boyfriend and I decided to spend a romantic weekend ringing in the New Year and I chose this hotel from previous reviews and yes saw this on the show "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" and it looked great. It started off rocky, our room wasnt ready until 4pm (we got there around 1pm) and the room was in a main area-near both of the main restaurants. All we heard for the first few hours after checking in to our room was loud noises (people walking, talking, slamming their doors). We basically heard everything! When I called, at first they said we are completely booked and cannot move you. However I called again and complained-this was really ruining our romantic weekend I mentioned and I spoke to Amanda and Samantha at the front desk. They were both amazing! They managed to find us a Beautiful Room and it was unreal!! They upgraded us to a room with panaromic views-it was just gorgeous! The room was huge...had a sunken bath tub and a fire place. The service here was unbelievable, everybody so friendly and eager to help. It was a bit chilly to lay out at the pool or take part in some of the other activities...however I would consider coming up during warmer temps:) And food was great, but a bit pricey. The Gym was awesome, good amount of equipment and not to mention, there is a beautiful bike/jogging path.
For Singles or Coupes, beware...this is more of a Family Resort. So expect to see kids everywhere and don't expect much of a big night life here. Also, there isn't much to do outside of the resort...there is a small downtown area with a few boutiques and 3 Wineries. Not much else, so dont spend more than 3-4 days here.
All in all, I fell in love with the charm of this place and would come back sometime in the future.
