Pros: The view from the window in our room was of water surrounded by mountains, perfect! Our room was clean and quite acceptable. The desk clerk was very friendly and helpful. The hotel had the only place to eat, other than a grocery store, which closes early. The dinner was satisfactory, which is good since the server gave us the 2 selections for the evening, and being vegetarian, I was relieved that one was suitable for me.
Cons: Evidently the server gets off at 9 p.m., because he never came back after bringing us our drinks and main meal; just left before asking if we wanted dessert which was included in our prix fixe dinner. The dessert wasn't as important as the feeling that we'd been abandoned. We began our meal about 8:00, which I thought was sufficient time. The only way we knew that the server had left was that a woman locked the door from the restaurant to the kitchen. Clearly it was a message to leave. No one cleared the table, just locked up!
