    So pretty and nice. Love the property and the service. The only thing that feels off is the guide on the hotel-provided guided walk was super aggressive about tips. He spent the whole walk talking about people who didn't tip him.More

    Didn't realize this was not an option any more. While breakfast at the main lobby was great, we really enjoy going over to the restaurant and enjoying the view. The Ventana is our Happy Place and has been for nearly 30 years.
