Excellent stay!!
The property was fabulous. Right from the check in to the services was all what one would expect of a property of this standard. To add to it the small patio gives a homely feeling where you are surrounded by trees and birds chirping.

Great location great food
Wish there was a bar and more food location options. There was only one on-site restaurant, but the food was great. We had no towels or extra bed on our room. Towels came later and the extra bed was not available. The location was good and staff was friendly. The spa was very basic place.
