A Marriage Made in Heaven1
Went for a wedding. Beautiful event in the yard. But the trip was short. In Saturday, out Sunday. Wish I could have stayed to use more of the amenities, such as the pool or even the big tub in the room. Beautiful place. Some miscommunication about the car service to and from the airport, however, left a sour taste.

Nice hotel
Hotel is very modern and beautiful, comfortable. Room service very slow - about an hour, one morning they didn't even show up. Staff was decent yet unenthusiastic. Front desk was very nice.
