Best place to relax… ever

September 2014

After reading amazing review after amazing review on TripAdvisor, my expectations were higher than normal for this trip. This place lived up to the hype. I have to say that the best part about this wonderful inn is the location. Everywhere you look, you see paradise. Every meal, every snack, every drink, every activity just immerses you in relaxation and peace. In addition to that, the staff is SO attentive. We never require much attention from staff at hotels, and this was no different…but the level of service still delighted us. Every face we passed had a smile on it and a friendly word for us. The chefs were SO great! The front desk (Lisa, Natalie) were super helpful and sweet. The fact that everything we could’ve needed or wanted was footsteps away from us at all times was great. Easiest vacation ever. The breakfast was DELICIOUS, and the Honebaked Ham boxed lunches were so convenient and very good. Every soft drink, candy bar, cookie was replaced magically within seconds. Everything was always stocked. I have recommended this place to so many people; 1 has already made reservations! I will continue to share my pictures and our experience with anyone wanting the perfect getaway. I hate to say a negative at all, but want to share that I do think housekeeping could be just a tad better. We had bags of garbage and a box of cleaning supplies outside our door for 2 days. Our sheets were never changed (not even on the 3rd day, when the card says they will be). And on the last day, we had to ask Lisa (who was amazingly fast with it) to bring up more shampoo/conditioner/soap b/c they didn’t replenish it. That kinda stuff should be top notch from housekeeping at a place as high quality as this. That’s the ONLY negative. We will be back!!
