It was a total pleasure to stay at this hotel. The rooms were spacious and well appointed, and between all of us and our various stays we tried 6 of them. The public areas were pleasant and the pool delightful. But best of all were the staff who were nothing other than efficient, friendly and helpful at all times. And... More

We booked the Belmond Governor's Residence at the last minute and actually extended our trip so we could enjoy it a bit longer. As I was traveling with five other women, the hotel was kind enough to book us their largest suite so we could all stay in the same room together. Though some of us had to sleep on... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Governor's Residence. The staff was excellent, friendly, and helpful. The food was fantastic. I especially enjoyed going on a tour of a local food market with the chef and then returning to cook and enjoy the meal. The architecture was beautiful, loved the indoor/outdoor dining area and the swimming pool.
