Being tired I ordered room service with great trepidation, I need not have worried the food was great. I think the thing that stands out about this hotel is the genuine warmth of the owner and staff.... More

Pool is excellent as are the grounds and plant life. Incredibly lean, tidy and neat everywhere. Groundsman seemed to be continually working and deserves high accolades as do all the staff. Room was extremely clean and it was great to see quality micro fibers being used along with the absence of harsh chemicals. Finally some place has it right! Staff... More
