Upon arrival, we proceeded to the check in counter where there was a disgruntled customer waiting. No one else was behind the counter. So we waited behind him for about 15 minutes. Finally a woman emerged from a door and proceeded to deal with the man in front of us. Once they were done, we checked into our room, a little disappointed that they actually charge you for incidentals prior to your stay, then remove the charges a few days after. The woman behind the counter wasn't very happy after her previous customer and treated us very rudely as if we had caused her some inconvenience. Once we got settled into our room, we got ready for dinner down at their restaurant. The restaurant staff was fantastic. They were very polite, attentive, and the food and wine were delicious. A perfect way to end a long day. We enjoyed the beautiful ocean view from our corner room balcony, and bundled up in the crisp, cool night. The bed was very comfortable and it was an overall pleasant, brief stay.
