Price point more realistically ....
The attention to detail and the personal touches for our experience. They made our anniversary very special!
I was confused about pricing when booking spa services. I thought the price quoted for some items were per couple, but turned out to be per person, even though it was a couples service. This information was poorly clarified to me when speaking to the staf
The facility and view are outstanding.
Across the board the staff was overly solicitous but utterly useless. This is clearly a management issue, and they should put everyone in a retraining program like the Four Seasons. Also, the extra charges are exhorbitant (really).
overall nice facilities and grounds, but food serv
the views and the bungalow room was great
food service (both in room and at the pool lunch) was slow, inaccurate and not as expected. although the food quality was very good.
