Movie stars stayed here in the golden age of Hollywood, and one can see why. One is treated like a star - for example, during a 7 am lap swim in the wonderfully heated pool, I was offered a glass of water with lemon - a great way to end the exercise. Rooms are arranged in numerous casitas around the walled compound with meticulously landscaped grounds. The restaurant is a favorite gathering place for locals celebrating special events; the fitness center is well equipped. Each room has a sense of privacy with hedges and walls creating one's own outdoor space. I would definitely stay here again.
