Beautiful Hotel, Room & Views
The weekend didn't get off to the best start ... I specifically booked for a room with a balcony and view of the golf course, but was put into a dark, bottom corner room with a view of a garden wall. I did complain to the front desk, and after 20 minutes I was moved to a room that I had originally wanted/booked (coincidentally the same room as I stayed in the previous year). From what I understand, it wasn't entirely the Hotels fault, but they need to find a better way to handle their bookings and customer service. I should get what I paid for. The new room was very nice, very clean and had the most amazing views. Breakfast was very nice, though they were very slow to replenish items that ran out on the buffet. I will return again, and would recommend staying here, there are just a few small things for them to work on.
