My wife and I were looking for a place to celebrate our anniversary without having to go far outside of our city. This place was the perfect getaway whether in or outside of San Diego. The drive up through the grounds instantly sets the tone of a place of relaxation, and that it was. The staff was very attentive, accommodating, welcoming and knowledgeable. They certainly made us feel well taken care of with an above and beyond, but not overwhelming standard of guest service. The spa services are incredible, the staff is well trained and the relaxation room really makes you not want to leave. We are big on food and were pleasantly surprised to see some great sourcing from local farms with not only a creative approach to the menu but equally delicious, as well. The view during brunch was pleasantly relaxing. If there were any negatives it's hard to recount as the staff, grounds and amenities make every effort to ensure your stay is nothing short of exactly why you arrived there in the first place. We would definitely recommend this place as a destination resort, and thankfully this works as a great staycation for us.
