Maybe best hotel experience ever

Absolutely loved this property- will stay here again-outstanding!! Pros: Beautiful layout- feel secluded, loved all the exterior lighting, convenient parking, gorgeous landscaping, beautiful lobby, incredible room, 24hr pool/jacuzzi, impeccable friendly front desk service, beautiful grounds- fragrant, lovely restaurant with outdoor fireplace Cons: Literally the only cons would be with the restaurant- the evening female waitstaff were literally all incompetant. They forgot people‘s orders, took forever, forgot to bring out requested items- even when not busy! The manager was great however and the breakfast female waitstaff was great. I would seriously replace and better train the entire evening waitstaff. Also, a suggestion would be to add more local/southwestern dishes to the dinner menu since there almost none. Overall I did not want to leave as everything but the waitstaff was superb!
