Yes, the food and drink may be a little pricey but it is good quality serviced with a smile. The gym is really only two treadmills and two bikes, the pool is adequate, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna.

We visited in march 2017, the welcome to our room was very friendly (if a bit too much information at once.) The room had a lovely decor, a balcony, was a good size and the bathroom facilities were great. Toiletries and water were replenished as you needed with no fuss and sometimes with no asking. Lovely surroundings, so pretty and...
