The resort & spa is peaceful and beautiful. you can really disconnect and relax here. It is an old hotel but they are constantly upgrading. But for me there was 2 mayor turnoffs. The restaurant apart from the slow service what I cant forgive is the food is just blah. It just takes you away from the experience when the only food nearby is just tasteless. The other thing that disappointed me is I am n Expedia Gold Member and this is a VIP Gold recommended hotel which is why I decided on this hotel. But I was never acknowledged and when I brought it up I was promised a bottle of wine that I never received in my 5 night stay. Make of that what you will

Huge desillusion. We intended to have a great week of rest in this difficult period. It was not. The hotel is outdated with no proper maintenance. Rooms are neither isolated for sound nor wind! One night, music from the hotel was played loud in common areas preventing us from sleeping. Junior suites which are the cheapest ones do not have fridge... For 200 USD à night, this is a big minus. I think obviously the hotel owner does not care about his customers. It is by no means some holistic nor ecological place. We had to change room 3 times. Only things to save, the view and the personnel in general who try their best to save situation
