My wife and I were given a 60th birthday present (my 60th not my wife's, she is much younger) for a two day stay at The Inn at Dos Brisas. We found the grounds and property exquisite. The Casitas (Jasmine) we stayed in was beautifully furnished in western decor, very spacious and a patio overlooking the open fields with horses of grander. The food was just "OK" and the service was fine. We expected more from a five star resort on the food.
The most impressive part of our trip and most enjoyable was the time we spent with Mr. Estes, the Equine Manager. We did not take a trail ride nor did we sign-up for any horse lessons. After spending three hours with Mr.Estes both my wife and I said the reason we would return to Dos Brisas is because of Mr.Estes. He makes Dos Brisas a five star resort on his own merit. A true "Cowboy" but even more impressive a true Gentlemen with knowledge on oh so many different facets of life. His stories will entertain you like you have never been entertained before. For those future guests you must take the time to introduce yourselves to Mr. Estes.
Oh yeah, by the way he is also one of thee very best horseman in North America. Just take a look at the attached pictures. My wife and I are horse owners so we do have some knowledge on horsemanship. You will deny yourself an experience of a life time if you don't meet Mr. Estes. Even better, sign-up for a riding lesson and you'll have an experience you'll never forget!!
