What a jewel of a place! Beautiful room, gardens, friendly efficient service and people. Will certainly love to go back again. Nice and quiet and within walking distance of town. We booked a suite as it was a special occasion, which was really big and comfortable.

The property was beautiful and the rooms were quite nice, but the service was reminiscent of a start-up that was trying to work out the kinks. I tried for over three weeks to book a spa appointment, but the email responses took days (ultimately, I got no appointments). Also, the hotel's extensive spa menu is quite misleading. There is basically... More

Wonderful place with great service. Our room was so large. The free shuttle service to local restaurants (and return) meant that the location just outside the centre was no problem at all. Breakfast was a treat and we felt that the staff really did everything they could to make it a very relaxing stay. Lovely gardens and just a great... More

Wonderful staff took care of our every request - so friendly and brought us champagne for our honeymoon! The dinner was delicious at the on premise restaurant - wonderful wine selection as well. Massages here are an absolute MUST - best one i've had in my life.

Lovely hotel, good sized villas for a family, fantastic restaurant, and great spa. Sitting around the pool in the sun was even nicer given the good service from staff constantly topping up drinks etc. All in all a great experience

Such a beautiful setting, such personal and outstanding service and such a lovely, well-appointed room with a balcony. The standard room left nothing to be desired. The bed was so comfy. We were just sorry we were staying for only one night and will definitely be back! The managers took a personal interest and the staff were very discreet, while... More
