relaxing atmosphere, great food, great staff

Oct 1, 2014 lisa MA, United States

The meal was excellent. Enjoyed the chef coming to the table to explain dishes from the menu. Service in the restaurant was also excellent.

Check in could have been more informative. It wasn't clear that we had to call the restaurant and reconfirm our dinner reservations. We did get a room that had a bad smell and we were relocated. However, we were asked to come there to the desk, rather than we'll get right on that and be back to you asap. Eventually, someone did come to the room with new keys.

The service, the food, the whole relaxing experience

The greatest place for a yummy relaxing vacation

Oct 1, 2014 Judy Massachusetts, United States

It was an extremely relaxing environment when we wanted down time and activities galore for the more active moments.

The staff members are exemplars for hospitality. We were treated like royalty. One note, if you have dietary concerns or restrictions, forget taking culinary classes- there is no flexibility in this department.

All I can say is this place is first class and we will be going back again and again.
