We stayed here as a family for my daughter's 7th birthday weekend. Unfortunately, she was sick the entire weekend so we couldn't really do much in the way of outdoor activities so I cannot comment about that. I know there are several wonderful walking trails and hikes to do in the area.
The rooms are great and the views is beautiful. Lots of windows and places to sit to enjoy the view in the lobby area and the outside veranda. There wasn't anywhere to sit in the room where you could just enjoy the view with a coffee and a book. Wicker chairs on the balconies, but not useful when it's pouring rain outside. Plus, there were four of us in the room, but we only had 3 bath towels; even when the room was tidied the next morning, we still only received 3 towels. No bathrobes provided so bring your own. Single serve coffee maker in the room, not Keurig, but a filter disk type. Only one drinking glass provided so bring your own water bottle if there is more than one of you. Didn't see a menu for room service so assume there is none. Pool change room is small and not upgraded like the rest of the building and run out of towels by about 8:30pm if the hotel is full. I am certain that there isn't enough chlorine in the pool so swim at your own risk as I wound up with a head to toe rash. Hot tubs need to be reset by the front desk if the emergency stop button is pressed. Not convenient when you have to hike up to the 2nd floor lobby from the 1st floor pool. Rooms, balconies and hotel property is non-smoking with some designated areas if you need to light up. Washer and dryer available for $2 each on the main floor.
Front desk staff are nice, but didn't really do anything above and beyond. There was only one person to serve a line of people on a Friday night check-in. Unsure if that is normal.
We ate at the hotel restaurant, Westcoast Grill, for lunch and dinner and did take out muffins and drinks for breakfast. That was a bit hard on our wallets as the food was average, but the price tag was higher than average, especially for a family of 4, but we were limited on where we could go due to unwell daughter. Restaurant staff are hit and miss with service, depends who you get. The wait staff are not very quick on the uptake when it comes to special menu requests as they seem to get caught flatfooted when they do get requests. Mixed drinks are crazy overpriced and sound good on the menu, but taste is meh.
Overall, it was a nice and restful weekend, but there isn't anything at this hotel that would bring us back. less
