Stunning! Looking forward to going back there again, the experience of staying at this hotel while traveling in that area is the best, in my opinion, completely different and very worthwhile, they are thinking about every little detail, amazing views everywhere, excellent food and wonderful service, and all this when we stayed in a relatively cheap room - so from here you can only go up, highly recommended, I write the recommendation and want to go back there already

This property and surrounding area are beautiful!! I could wander the trails all day. Breakfast is lovely, so many options. My only issue, there was no way to control the temp of the room and it was very warm. However, I wouldn’t let that stop me from returning for another stay!!

8/10 Very good

The situation is impressive and so are the hotel's grand salons. The view from our large room was beautiful and in general the food and service were very good. Disappointingly, CNN was the only available English-speaking channel on the room TV. Also, since Covid is again on the increase, it was surprising that more measures weren't in place (e.g., the same buffet utensils were used by all guests, few guests appeared to use hand sanitizer when entering the dining areas, and very few staff or guests wore masks).
