Our room had a couple issues with the heater not working - but when we called they brought up a portable heater which worked! So we would recommend this place! It is large - has a lot of...

The service staff was extremely helpful too. The setting is lovely with beautiful views towards the ocean and hillsides. We also spent the night there and the sleeping rooms were nicely decorated...

We were here for several days for a corporate sales meeting. All the facilities, including the guest rooms were very good. The food was decent.
