This is going to be a tough review to complete. I want to be honest and yet, I have a desire to be objective as well...so...bear with me.
Such a gorgeous oasis. As soon as we stepped up into the pool and casita area, it was like..Oh My God....truly. It was. See the pictures.
The breakfast... wonderful and always with lots of great fruits and yogurts and buns or pastries all followed by a different hot dish, each day. Eggs one day, crepes another...a different egg dish. Yummers, all the way.
And here is the more difficult bit...Ellen, the hostess...hasn't quite left her New York approach to things, behind. Always wanting to be helpful, she would become somewhat overly informative and had a difficult time disengaging and allowing her visitors an opportunity to talk amongst themselves. I also found the 'rules' to be a problem. No sweets in the rooms...what adult doesn't maybe want a stash of sweets, for night time munching? And the 'rule' about shoes in the main room...and in truth, I understand the concern...dirty feet in the commercial kitchen area...then the kitchen should be isolated in some way. But...I disliked the 'rule' lecture and I disliked being unable to have a conversation with being interrupted by Ellen.
I know she means well...but...she should leave her New York habits, IN New York...and embrace Mexican life styles. I think, anyway.
