Fabulous property with all-around great service and amenities. This was a last stop on a west coast road trip from Seattle to San Diego, where my husband played at Torrey Pines and I chilled. Loved the coffee shop just off the reception desk, and the all-day lunch/dinner at Mustangs and Burros. I'm not a pool person, so I can't tell... More

Major updates are needed on this property especially at the high price point charged. Gardens / courtyard area were nice. Basic rectangular unheated pool and nice hot tub but old pool furniture. We had a king suite which had a nice layout and huge bathroom but furniture was all old as was the carpets and furniture in the public areas.... More

The architecture and atmosphere effect associations with elegant country houses in latin America and the prospect of a relaxed stay. This is carried out with friendly and professional staff, and details including a complimentary bottle of Trinitas wine, Frette towels, Speakman showerheads, and a full service spa. The lobby, verandah dining, and patio with outdoor fireplace all make you feel... More

We have just spent 5 nights at this hotel, we were hoping for 5 nights down time in what was advertised as a luxury spa hotel. Our checkin took over 2.5 hours due to a previous wedding party being given late check outs. When we were given options of rooms we were not able to see inside just where the... More

I was here on business so I did not get a chance to enjoy all the hotel had to offer. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We had a complimentary bottle of red wine in each room which was good wine. The staff at the front desk, the cleaning team and the conference area were very attentive and courteous. The... More

Very bad Customer support. After check out I had problems with billing, beside invoice they didn't release the credit card pre-authorization done at check in. I call several time the hotel and they didn't help at all, just saying to wait 20 days in order to have pre-aughorization released automatically. I've never experienced such a bad support!!!!

This lush, Spanish style hotel features lush gardens and amazing vegetation in multiple courtyards. The outdoor hallways and multiple levels are unique -- styles not commonly found in the U.S. The pool area is pleasant, with its grass and stone deck and the outdoor bar area, surrounding a fireplace, is really nice.
