Very nice hotel though slightly showing its age, but a lot of charm. Nice and very large pool but cool in March. Rooms (junior suites) are OK but again could use some refreshning though the bed was very comfortable.
La Fontana restaurant (outdoor patio) was exceptional with attentive and knowlegeable staff, fantastic "made on premise" pastas and other delicacies. While I shun hotel food, I had 2 dinners and a lunch and enjoyed them all immensily. Too bad the wines are outrageously priced - a $12 retail bottle will put you back $40, with 18% gratuity over $50. Maybe that's why the bars were all deserted at nigth - $14 a glass of wine? Cheaper to take a short cab ride to d/t coral gables if there are several of you.
Poolside fool was equally surprisingly good!
