Spent one nite here in November. Very relaxing. The rooms are clean -- decor is reminiscent of Martha Stewart. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. We had dinner at the restaurant. The fish was excellent; the duck was mediocre. My husband and I shared the dessert, chocolate fondant with coconut gelato which was wonderful. Our waitress was delightful. Yes, they are a bit pricey.
The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable, although the room was very warm. This is a good place to get away for one or two nights.
