We stayed a couple of nights here this year, and there was no question about which hotel we should stay at. We have been here before and the hospitality shown to us is first rate.
The accommodation is spacious, comfortable, and the beautiful gardens are always kept in tip-top condition. The restaurant (and the delicious food) is more than adequate, the service is always courteous and friendly, and the prices are very reasonable. The pool is always kept crystal clear, and the pool-side seating is comfortable, and enough of it that you don't have to fight for it, nor "reserve" it with towels.
The whole place seems to be run in a very friendly, and almost informal way. It is a treat to stay here. We thoroughly recommend it.
