We returned to this gorgeous location last summer and were devastated by the way it is being mismanaged into the ground. This was our go-to summer vacation spot...until now. It has lost its funky, boho, artsy character completely. As several others have pointed out, the new management team redefines awful. In addition to treating guests rudely, they treat the staff very poorly which makes for an extremely awkward and decidedly non-relaxing atmosphere. Prior to the management change (which apparently occurred in 2009) this was a charming, off-beat, romantic haven with good vibes, friendly staffers, cool music, and delicious food. The food is still good, but that's it. Also, you might want to know that the new management holds a mid-week rave party with a cover charge in the hotel's open-air restaurant. During this party, the restaurant and bar are closed to hotel guests, so forget about dinner or drinks on site unless you want to pay an additional fee and suffer through ear-shatteringly terrible Italian house/techno music. What a waste of a beautiful property. Please, someone buy these creeps out and restore this place to its former glory!
