After reading all these raving review, I was hoping to be smitten, but I was not.
The grounds were beautiful, indeed, and very well kept. We stayed in the Garden room. This is the least expensive room on the property. However, the photos on the site did not reflect the fact that the windows looked out onto the parking lot. I did not expect an ocean view, but I was hoping for a garden view. Had I known that it overlooked the parking lot, I would not have booked this room. In addition, the matrass was very uncomfortable. By the time we figured out it was the pillow top, we had to leave.
I was not enamored with their breakfast either. The first day we were served an egg (practically hard-boiled) on a piece of ham inside the thinnest of crust, no bread of any sort. I ran after the woman who brought the breakfast and asked for any kind of bread. She said it was not available today. I can’t eat eggs without bread, the thin crust does not count. They could not give me a piece of toast?!!! The next day the egg was scrambled and came with zucchini bread, which was sweet and filled with some dried fruit. I’d have really liked a roll or a piece of toast instead, but I did not ask this time. There was also a little cereal with yogurt and OJ. OJ was very good.
Basically, the breakfast was very limited and if you did not like what they served, you went hungry, as I did.
In the afternoon they serve wine (white only) and an appetizer. The first day we received a little salad and two small and delicious canapés, the second day it was, what appeared to be, store-bought raita, green chutney and flat Indian crackers.
So overall, I felt disappointed, with my hopes up too high from the posted reviews.
