It was delightful - beautiful cabin dating from the original hotel in 1928, lovely colour scheme in sage green and cream. After some of the Tributes to Chinz we saw in B&B's it was very soothing on the eye! The best bit is the shady deck with a hammock and chairs for six or seven, leading down to the oasis with the boat in the middle. We ate in the very good restaurant, and took a bottle of wine back to the deck and sat out talking under the massive palm trees with the hot desert wind blowing through. Very romantic, one of the most romantic evenings on our entire honeymoon, in fact. And it was $103 in June, which was about right I think.
The pool is great too, after a dusty day in the park in 107 degrees of heat! And the carrot cake at breakfast is delicious. I recommend sneaking some extra pieces away for later!
