We stayed as a family of 4 with 2 teenagers in adjoining rooms. All 4 of us enjoyed our stay. Highlights of the common areas: Pristine pool; Billiard pool; Small gym; TV room; plenty of separate areas; courteous and attentive staff. Highlights of the rooms: Very spacious and private, with very comfortable beds; plenty of storage, seating, and desk space; large bathrooms and deck. Food and drinks were good; desserts were delicious. Grounds were just extensive enough to take a nice walk through lush gardens, but bring mud-worthy shoes for the non-bricked paths. We were a bit disappointed that there were no real "elevation views", despite being in the hills. This was an extremely comfortable and peaceful 3-night getaway for our family.
