Our San Diego-based company hosted a small strategic planning conference here early this week. Although I'd attended meetings at this property, I had never before been a guest of the resort or had an opportunity to take advantage of the spa services.
The main focus of our strategic planning was service, and the staff at the resort gave us plenty of good examples to cite during our involved discussions.
The hotel occupancy was obviously low during the two days of our visit, but you wouldn't have been able to tell that by the amount of personnel on staff. They were not only plentiful, but they were friendly and helpful, and almost without exception, made every interaction personal - so removed from the ordinarily pleasant, but typically robotic interactions from many in the hotel industry.
In fact, the esthetician in the spa was so genuine that I hugged her on the way out. I hated to leave, but who wouldn't? The restaurant was closed on our one overnight, but the lobby bartender who served our drinks before we left for dinner remembered all of our choices when we returned. Pretty impressive!
All of our guest rooms were spacious and beautifully-appointed. There was not a leaf out of place on the grounds. I would absolutely return for a weekend away with my husband, and definitely a visit to the spa.
