My wife and I stayed here on the evening of our 1 year wedding anniversary. We were upgraded to a suite which was awesome (probably because we were only staying one night and the place was packed with a college group so they needed all the standard rooms). The grounds are amazing and the setting is great too. Our room was very clean and had a fridge. There are geese and horses as this is a working ranch so there is a little noise but I am used to it from back home. The pool area and reception is also very nicely kept and has friendly helpful staff that provided a map of the area and recommended some waterfall hikes which we took advantage of.
The only issue we had was with our waiter at dinner, he absolutely insisted (rudely) that we take the buffet and not order from the menu. He went so far as to tell us if we ordered from the menu it would take 30 min to get our food since everyone was busy catering to the buffet. When my wife asked if he could recommend anything on the menu is answer was literally, "no." I had to work quite hard not to stand up and punch this a-hole in the face on my anniversary night. What was funny was that after we ordered our food from the menu it came in about 10 minutes and the food was quite good (although over priced but there arent any other options). Besides this useless waiter the stay was great and I would stay again.
