I was very surprised to read your comments on Trip Advisor following our telephone conversation shortly after your departure. I had explained to you that as your room was located adjacent to the reception, the reason for the voices during the night emanating from the front desk was due to our training of a new night auditor. I apologized for...

So beautiful and relaxing. I had a facial at the spa, then soaked in the jacuzzi by the lake. Dinner was delicious and the menu is filled with local delights.
