PROS: The property is beautifully appointed. The surrounding grounds will need a bit of time to mature but provide a very peaceful setting. There are plenty of trails to run or walk. The lawns and gardens are very well maintained.
Rooms are large and spacious and welcoming. The darkening curtains work superbly. The bed was very comfortable. The bathrooms have two sinks, a separate tub and shower with multiple jets. There is plenty of square footage and a separate vanity counter and mirror just outside the bathroom.
Every ounce of food I had during our two and a half day visit was excellent. In some ways, the food may be the thing you remember long after your visit. The chef deserves major kudos.
ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT: The staff is sometimes intrusive. Parts of the place seem overstaffed at this point. This is a tough balance for a leading resort and I expect it to improve as the property finds its stride during its second year.
Also, parts of the bathroom were 75-80% clean but lacked the finish you would expect at a property of this caliber. Again, a small point that should get better as housekeeping becomes more consistent.
