Renovated since I was here last time about ten years ago. Seems like each casita now has its own private jacuzzi. Huge room and bathroom that is modern. Great service. Quaint tennis resort. No onsite good though.

Our housekeeper even left a bookmark in my...

Brunch is almost perfect! Silver Patron Margaritas with wraps, clubs,salad & quiche. The location is excellent, dining outside with waitress on riding pants that fit quite well. You noticed I am trying to reach the minimum.

Following our weeklong annual meeting in Carlsbad, this was my choice for our free day. And it will be so as long as our meetings remain in the area!

We recently went for a girls getaway to play tennis, and it was amazing!! If you play tennis, I highly recommend taking a lesson with Ian, Robin, Eduardo, Doug, or Steven.
