We stayed in this hotel and it was okay. I say okay, there wasn't anything REALLY wrong with it, but it was all the 'little' things you know?
We ended up changing rooms as the first room we were given (we booked online), was tiny and had a really big old eyesore of a house right outside the window that really looked like a deathtrap and needed to be torn down. This room was so small, we could barely move around the double beds. The faucet leaked and water spewed out all over the counter. We were moved without any issues, to a room facing the front which had a slightly better view, but a bit more noise (wasn't a problem though).
Room cleanliness, was OK, ( I did find some gum on the carpet which remained there throughout our stay even though I'd mentioned it, so that didn't really impress me all that much). The rooms had full stocked mini bar, but no corkscrew, and the bell hop had to come up and open our wine for us. For a wine 'themed' hotel, I was surprised by this.
The wine tasting..... well.. we never got to go to this even though we were there 3 nights, as it was at a VERY awkward time, and only for one hour, between 5-6. I would suggest it be a bit longer (2-3 hours would have been perfect)... you could have come back from a full day, had a nice glass of wine, then got ready and headed out again for the evening.
We used the fitness facilities here... not too bad, and the view was good. The elliptical trainer's computer didn't work, so you could USE it, just not know exactly what you were accompllshing. They had a water cooler up there for guests, however, there were NO disposable cups (shame, because who brings there water bottle on vacation?)
Jacuzzi was great.... nice and hot.... however the jets didn't work :(
The beds were small. My cousin and I each had a double bed, but you definitely would NOT book this room for 4 adults... the beds were hard and I don't think they actually had boxsprings, just some kind of hard platform that squeaked when you moved on the mattress.
The ;staff were helpful at this hotel, but it didn't really 'knock my socks' off you know? It wasn't bad, but it was the little things overall that just kind of added up.... including having to call down to the front desk for more toilet paper......
I think we'll try another hotel next time, unless they can fix some of the 'little' things........
