It’s with mixed emotions that my wife and I offer this review. We have many positive comments to offer about the staff who attended to all of our needs; however, we were disappointed in the failure of the owners to stand behind an event they planned on our behalf that did not come close to living up to the expectations they created.
Furthermore, we found the interactions with the owners to be a bit forced, contrived, and occasionally overwhelming. When you pay the rates that are charged by this property, you expect a bit more discretion and privacy – we certainly didn’t need or want the daily “chat” at breakfast and dinner that was thrust upon us.
Speaking of dinner, the chefs are phenomenal, bit the flexibility is minimal. If you come with children – and actually enjoy spending your meals with your children – you may want to think twice about staying here. You’re encouraged to have them eat at an earlier hour than you with any other children on the property, and they are not given a choice of meals at all, but rather presented with the chef’s kids' meal of the day. Again, not what I would expect given the premium price.
In the interest of balance, I want to once again acknowledge the staff. They are comprised mostly of 21-25 year old men and women who seem to be on break from University, in-between school and life, or more generally adventuring a bit before settling into the workforce. Almost without exception, they are earnest, enjoyable, and professional. It is they who earned the 3 stars in this review.
