We only stayed one night before flying home but we found all the staff so friendly and helpful. Service was amazing. Our room very comfortable and very clean. Pick up from our local flight at the airport was so smooth as well as the return trip. The office was so accomodating before and after arrival. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. Food at the restaurant and staff were very good Only regret was that we didnt have time to go on their 2 hour river cruise ( I believe they offer a day and night one!)
