Pros: gorgeous architecture and property. The landscaping is unreal. Unique experience. Stunning pool/jacuzzi. Nice activities — definitely do the hike to las palmas beach.
Cons: incomprehensibly slow (and of course overpriced, but that’s normal for a resort style hotel) restaurant. We were continually shocked at the wait time and less than stellar service. No insulation in the rooms which was not a big deal, but we could heard some water pipes and some talking through the walls. Some of the lighting was perfect, but dimmers should be added in some places like the shower where the bright light is a vibe killer. They tell you that it’s a good idea to book activities in advance, but they didn’t say that the capacity is very small. The hike is only 8 people, which is of course nice, but yeah you have to plan your day next day in advance. We couldn’t get into yoga because it was full - looked like maybe 8-10 people? For a hotel that could have as many as 80+ guests, they should find a way to accommodate more people for some of these activities since there really isn’t much else to do (esp when the weather is bad). The hike was amazing, but we were disappointed that you cannot do any hiking without a guide and also cannot use the mountain bikes without going on the guided ride. The adjacent property is private so it totally makes sense, but there should be more autonomous activities that don’t require bookings.
Loved it but I recommend staying elsewhere for some of your trip
