Nice to see most of the great staff is still here, and the new folks are great in the Velas Mold as well.
Andrea has improved the osobuco, it is consistently very well prepared and the sauce is right.
Steaks have been prepared a bit more on the rare side, which is preferable to over cooking. I always recommend sauce on the side.
They have a new front chef, and I have not spoken much with him, but waiters Julio, Carlos (both of them), Ernesto, Ivan and the Manager Omar are all part of the annual pleasant arrival scene.
New candles, glasses, and the table wines chosen this year are the added plus for the table setting.
I would like to see the salad bar expanded a bit with a few more choices.
Rooms are always well kept, new flat screen TVs -- though it would be nice to see Showtime or HBO-- I have been told there is a conflict- the tech guy came up and tweaked my hook up.
Grounds are still immaculate -- some changes, but manicured.
Live music in several venues, and very kid friendly in the ten acres of the grounds.
Bell staff, check in, guest services, all up to the task and genuinely pleasant to deal with.
Pool is heated- watch, some places they are not.
Comfortable, and feels like home ambiance-- kitchen and dining room nice size and you will love the large balcony view.
