Stayed at this hotel for one night on a B&B basis but had an evening meal in The Ventana Grand Cafe during our stay. The Room itself (426) was clean enough if not a little compact with the necessary tea making facilities and dispenser style soap/shower gel in the bathroom. The shower itself was not of a very good standard due to the pressure being poor and hard to get a warm rather than very hot shower. All in all for the rate we paid it was as expected.
The food we had at breakfast was good and plentiful, being buffet style you could have as little or as much of what you wanted. The evening meal we had in the restaurant was very good, not cheap but about right for the quality of the food and service.
The only real downside to our stay was trying to park the car. I don't think that the hotel has enough spaces to deal with the rooms when a wedding is on here so we spent a good 30 minutes to eventually get a space at one of their sister hotels that are adjacent to it.
All in all a very nice stay at the hotel with pretty much as expected value, would definitely return.
