Not worth 1100$ per night at all! Sit down dining not available for breakfast nor lunch only dinner. No slippers. Robes didn’t fit. Asked to pick you up to take to car, would take forever so we would walk to car. Cabin split into two, so you had a neighbor which was not my expectation at all. Overall disappointing. Not a relaxing few days we had in mind. Plus we had a barking dog next to us.
