The location of this place is fantastic; but that's the inherent problem with this place because if there was any reasonable competition it would fail.
The check-in was fine and the staff helpful. We had a room with a bathroom, but the water supply was hopeless; furnishings were basic and shabby. The breakfast was good, but the evening meals awful.
In general the standard of service was way below what I've experienced in the USA. This was exemplified when we moved on to Lake Tahoe, which was way better and cheaper.
