Travelling with the doodle we had to find a hotel that would accept our dog. This hotel caters to dogs. I couldn't believe this place. We arrived just in time for doggy happy hour, which consisted of a soy based ice cream treat for the doodle in the hotel bar. I had a local beer from a good selection. We were a assigned a ground level garden suite with two bedrooms, one bath, kitchen and pull out sofa bed that was comfortable by hotel sofa bed standards. There is a small but nice salt water pool, beautiful gardens including a butterfly garden and lovely planters which have vegetables growing in them. The manicured lawn was full of families and friends playing volleyball, badminton and soccer. I enjoyed sitting on the front porch reading my novel and the doodle enjoyed lying on the porch watching the butterflies. Our meals were taken on the outdoor patio. The food was quite tasty and not too overly priced. I believe the garden suite was $600/ night which was considerable but not out of sight considering the service provided. The kids, and even the big kids enjoyed the fire pit in the evenings, where there was a supply of marshmellows, graham crackers and Hershey chocolate for do-it-yourself s'mores.
We give this place 4 paws up!
