  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I thought I had booked the room that included breakfast. When I arrived to take breakfast I was informed breakfast was not included in the price I had advance paid for. This was not only disappointing, but expensive at $30.00 each. Additionally, the wait-staff needs improving. Slow and inattentive. Other than that, its a beautiful property and wonderful accommodations
