Loved! This place is an oasis. My husband and I stayed one night before flying out the next morning, and wished we had more time. To get there, you drive up into the hills, and it is just off the main road, in a gated area. The staff was very kind and friendly. Our room faced the garden and was perfect - spacious, decorated nicely, with an espresso machine. Bathroom is large, rainfall shower tiled with stones. The toiletries were really nice. The pool area and outdoor grassy area has lots of chairs, and a lovely view of the valley. You're less than ten min. from the Starbucks coffee plantation, and only took us 15 to get to the airport in the morning. The restaurant had good food and drinks. We were given welcome drink tokens, and since we left so early in the morning, got boxed breakfasts. Very nice, relaxing stay - would visit again.
Restaurant prices were expensive but the food was pretty good.
Oscar who works as the hotel shuttle is the highlight of this place. Most lovely guy I have e er met and it was a pleasure meeting him. Reception staff so lovely and helpful
This is a nice hotel, close to the airport. It sits on a hill with a nice view of the city and well kept garden to walk around in. We arrived late at night. Their shuttle was waiting for us and took us right to the hotel where everything was ready for us. The room was good sized, clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was very good and all the staff was very friendly and helpful.
The bed might have been just a little bit softer. Maybe a little pricey.
Staff were excellent. Hotel was very nice. Food in the restaurant was very good, a touch pricey.
Getting there. Driving through the city at night to get there. Take a taxi or hire a local driver. Once you get to the property it is very nice.
Wonderful bed. Quiet room. Decent food. Pleasant and helpful staff. The in-bedroom espresso machine was a godsend. Beautiful views.
Worn out towels. No room safe. $6 for a weak double espresso in the restaurant was outrageous. This location works best if you have transportation.
