Excellent staff, personal touches (ice water with lemon within seconds of taking a chaise at the pool), gorgeous grounds, fountains, flowers, hummingbirds, property was originally an estate built in the 20's and retains the style and feel. The pool isn't large but its lovely and the service throughout the hotel is personal but not intrusive. I had a smiple double room which was roomy with a large bathroom, huge separate tub, nice tiled shower (although the water temperature was erratic), internet was reliable, decor in keeping with style of hotel, slightly old world quaint, with modern amenities, although TV and game consoles could use upgrades according to my college student son. One of the outlets in my room didn't work so I had to work around charging my phone and computers a bit, but the postives about this place well override these small invconveniences. Once I was seated outdoors in a smoking area (bar I guess) when I visited the restaurant for dessert--this was not a pleasant experience although the setting was gorgeous. I am sure I would have been accommodated had I asked to move, which I didn't bother to do. The place has a personal feel to it that you do not get in a mega hotel and I would definitely stay again. Coffee at breakfast is $5, but you get a potful and cloth napkins in a garden setting, and the waiters are attentive and pleasant. The croissants are exemplary, the egg white frittata very good, and the fresh berries on the oatmeal are generous.
