It was very quiet and peaceful.
Pros: Beautiful and convenient to everything. The breakfast was the best. There was a waterfall outside beneath our balcony so we could hear running water when we were out there. The staff was polite. The hotel was located 3 miles from Stanford.
Cons: Nothing was bad.

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. The reception was friendly and refreshments - fruit, tea coffee and cookies were waiting. The room was big and well designed to give a relaxing and calming environment. The mattress were very comfortable and the bath - WOW - a Jacuzzi and a rain forest head shower. Bath robes in the closet, and refreshments in the room - water bottles fruit and snacks. Indoor and outdoor are well designed and lots of thought was given to let the guests have a wonderful experience. Breakfast was a real joy, varied and delicious food buffet! WONDERFUL!!! Highly recommended
