My wife and I stayed for two nights and got the Romantic Package which included a dozen roses, champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Before I get to the oddities, I must say the property itself is exceptional, but the service is not in the same league as other San Diego county hotels in which we have stayed (La Valencia, Rancho Valencia,L'Auberge Del Mar, Grande Colonial in La Jolla, etc.) So be warned that although you will get what you pay for when it comes to the property and the views, you may not with the service. 1) At check-in, the room wasn't ready at 4pm and the hotel clerk offered us a drink at their bar right adjacent to the check in desk - wow sounds good right. Turns out the bartender and the clerk got into an arguement about who would pay for the drinks (the hotel or us) we ended up paying. 2) No champagne/strawberries to be found in the room on arrival. EVERY hotel I have stayed at and gotten the Romantic Package with the champagne has had it in the room right there on the table when you enter the room - that kind of was weak on their part that I had to call and request it be sent. 3) No housekeeping the day after we checked in (they even asked me specifically when we wanted service (11am-1pm) and we got back at 1:20pm to see the room untouched. 4) The TV reception in our room (a Junior Suite Beach Front Cottage) was unwatchable on both the living/bedroom tv's. Hard to believe they could not set up better hardware for the cable connection in an essentially brand new facitlity. 5) Last,not really a complaint , but an odd thing both my wife and I commented on was the comped breakfast bar in the Windsor Cottage is cramped on a little bar next to the hotel clerk work stations which was a little weird. Overall I give the experience a B-.
