Nothing to say about the location or the rooms, both are great; I admit I still prefer the Post Ranch Inn over the Ventana but the latter still has plenty to offer if you're looking to relax and have a nice meal.
All the conditions are there to turn this peaceful haven into a truly luxurious resort except for those details - that are never just "details" - and which make the difference between a good hotel and a true luxury hotel such as the ones from the Relais & Châteaux or Small Luxury Hotels of the World chains. Management definitely needs to travel a little and learn.
In conclusion: great location, great rooms, good restaurant, luxury prices but ... no luxury perfomance
