Beautiful setting, Warm and knowledgeable staff. The restaurant offers a good variety of gourmet meal but tables have to be booked prior the visit.

Visited here for a tour as part of this excursion. It is a rum factory, you can have a nice lunch in the restaurant, rum tasting and there is of course a shop. Beautiful setting up in the hills.
