It was a long, hard drive to get to this place, but we really liked it, although a couple of things can be improved. This is a perfect place for a romantic getaway -- the rooms are huge and beautiful and the outdoor showers are gorgeous. (Too bad they didn't think to set the rooms off a bit from each other, because some of the showers are right next to the walking path and close to other rooms, but still it they are gorgeous.) It rained like crazy most of the time, so it was good to have a nice room. We were able to go on the trail near the hotel to see the blue river, but we were not able to go on the hike to the waterfall as the rain was torrential. The dining room is beautiful, but I have to say that the food was OK at best and downright awful at lunch time. Salads were good. I would recommend that they improve the food since there isn't much to do in the area and people will likely spend a lot of time in the hotel. The service was great -- everyone we came into contact with was very helpful and kind. The drinks at the bar were excellent!
