Major construction is going on through most of 2007. We woke each morning very early to the obnoxious sounds of banging, drilling and other loud, electric tool sounds. Admittedly, we visited during the off season, but the rooms (three cottages in our party) were all so stale smelling. At night, the waxy, noxious scent of Instalogs fills the air. Unlike the typical tropical (Balinese) lushly planted outdoor showers, the outdoor showers at Carneros are tiny, claustrophobic, corrugated metal enclosures with no vegetation. The patios are enclosed in this same industrial looking corrugated metal. Very, very hot in summer there - immature landscaping provides little shade, lots of metal & paved walkways all radiating heat. The Spa is very small, but we had excellent massages there. Overpriced for a place with cottages so closely set that you can hear your neighbors kids playing, parents talking & smell the smoke of their cigarettes!
