Relaxing. Excellent, friendly service. Take advantage of the hiking trails and you'll see plenty of local wildlife and great views of the ocean. Rooms have a private patio, I thought was nice and made the hotel feel more like a private cottage than a hotel...More

This property is mixed. There are some absolute positives and negatives here. I’ll start with negative. Communication & service is terrible. 1) We have been navigating the political situation to make sure it was safe, which it WAS, which they communicated. They did not tell...More

For proximity to the hub of the ranch which is The Inn, you can stay at a casita, a villa or one of our new residences.
