Wow, I really wanted to love this hotel. It looks very nice from the outside - think old Spanish Hacienda. The lobby was nice and the reception was super friendly and helpful. Its an old property that has been refurbished. Sometimes redone very well, like the lobby , restaurant and landscaping, and not so well in the rooms. Maybe it...

Thank you for your feedback. I am very sorry to hear that our hotel, or at least your guestroom, fell short of your expectations.

We love to come each year for a spa weekend. The hotel has comfortable, cozy rooms, a nice little pool, tapas on the patio for evening treats and a wonderful spa adjacent. It is in walking distance of town and many restaurants.
