This trip was for a family wedding. The resort is nice, service is OK. I expected more based on the high cost. Price online was significantly lower than the block rate. When I checked in, there was a hidden "resort fee" of $36/day which was not communicated beforehand. Those who booked directly with the resort did not pay this fee....

I recently attended a work conference at this resort. I will give a rundown of what I consider the good, decent and bad The Good, was the location up on the mountain with nice conference facilities for business meetings.

I just wanted to take a minute and put these guys on blast. My sister is getting married here and paying god-knows-how-much money for her big day, and I tried to book a room with them over the phone. I knew it was going to be expensive and was ready to pay a high price; however I was able to...

Dear Diana, We apologize for the inconvenience and disappointing service you experienced when making your reservation. The group room block for your sister’s wedding was full at the time of your reservation. However, we have updated your reservation so that is part of the group block at the discounted group rate and we look forward to welcoming you for this...

Over the top nice staff with gorgeous newly renovated rooms and a beautiful, well groomed property. The food is top notch and the views are incredible. It is convenient to Santa Cruz and other eclectic beach towns. We will be returning for sure.

My family spent a week at this resort and could not have chosen better. Staff was friendly, food was great, amenities were good and it's close enough to all the local things you could want to do! Rooms were smallish, but who could stay inside anyway!

Located at the top of a hill behind the main town, it is set in woodland featuring enormous redwoods and eucalyptus with deer running wild around the hotel grounds, and humming birds buzzing around whilst you eat on the terraces. It really is a most relaxing experience with a good sized pool and hot tub and a great resort spa...

From the time I arrived I knew this place was unique. I had a great experience checking in with the help of Sandy. The grounds are a little confusing but there are maps to help you find your way. I loved the spa and fitness center. I highly recommend bringing your hiking shoes as the resort lies on 300acres of...

Beware that there is a $36 surcharge for resort fees when you get there. Otherwise we had a very pleasant stay there. The restaurant was very good and staff excellent in sorting out a family of 12. The room was large and the bed very comfortable.

Folsom, California

Our mid-week stay was largely positive. The rooms are lovely, as is the location. No doubt about that. For a resort that bills itself as top-calibre, however, the service could have been better. For example, I approached the reception desk at Linwood's with my daughter just before 9:00 PM--not extremely late--but we both stood there or 5 minutes before anyone...
