This is the best hotel I have been ever in my whole life. The hospitality was beyond outstanding they check the room twice per day they prepare every single thing for you even the tiny details they will take care of it. For the facility I have not seen this type of facility in my whole life, a suite on the tree this is amazing with the the best view of the mountain everything around, very peaceful. The Clean is very very clean rooms. There were two restaurant inside the Tesla all of them are amazing and the food is nice. Tesla there is the bar in my experience that I would not see any hotel with this type of experience in my whole life like what they have
