The hotel is beautiful and set in beautiful surroundings. There is plenty to occupy yourselves with for 2-3 days with the lovely pools and spa. It was a shame that it rained most of the time we were there so we couldnt plan many activities but it also meant we could fully relax and use the facilities at offer. The staff were all v nice and the dinner at the restaurant raiva was v delicious. However i would say the service needs to be a little better/quicker/more attentive to warrant the prices you are paying for stay and food etc. There didnt seem to be a leading team member at any time during the stay e.g when there was an issue with our room or the dinner service.

hotel was beautiful and service was great, however there was not enough staff in the restaurants to offer the same standard as the property and as it is in a remote location without easy access to other restaurants, this is impactful. The hotel staff did their best - this problem is just be a universal issue across all travel sectors, unfortunately.

Beautiful property in a very nice setting. Overall very nice value with friendly / nice staff but did not match typical 5 star standard in certain areas. A few things to note: there was pretty extensive construction happening on the property that made noise and prevented easy walking from top to bottom levels. The restaurant still felt like a work in progress with some very uneven service and some dishes falling short. Left overall happy but needs a little work.

The location is great! The hotel is beautiful and simple. Super clean. But they need a better gym and more food option.
