The setting for this hotel is beautiful. The area is quiet. The central area has flowing waters for a very calming effect. The staff were very polite and attentive. The premier rooms are clean and each one has a theme that some might find a little cheesy. We were first checked into the Egypt room, but the hot tub did not work, so they upgraded us at no charge to the Marrakesh suite. Very nice! The rooms are clean and spacious. The hair dryers are worthless - bring your own. My wife had a great spa treatment - highly recommended. There is no automatic turn-down service, so you will have to request it. The valet parking is a rip off. The parking lot is open (uncovered) and next to the hotel. When we arrived there was no valet, so we parked ourselves, but you still pay the valet fee. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evening under the stars, and again in the morning at sunrise. The main pool/spa was closed for maintenance and you would think this would warrant a discount on the room rate...forget about it. This hotel is very pricey, but we splurged and enjoyed being pampered. There are others in the area that are similar that cost less. I would recommend to someone who wants the experience, but if you are simply passing through or going skiing, I would look elsewhere. Unless money is no object. My review of the restaurant is under Del la Tierra.
