For dinner or drinks it's top notch. Cool and casual chic the spot has a great feel. Drinks are goods, restaurant food excellent and it's located in my favorite boutique hotel in the desert. A must try.

I'm looking for a hotel with tennis courts and tennis pros onsite. I also would like water sports to be included for my young adult boys. Some hotels charge a resort fee and it takes care of Hobie Sail Boats and Paddle Boards and other toys
