We made this one a 'last minute' booking and couldn't have found anything better with a lot of research!
We were made to feel welcome even before we arrived via a couple of emails and follow-up phone call .. check-in was fast and friendly and the welcoming mini bar treats were lovely. There was even a little congratulations card for our anniversary. We had time to laze around the pool in the late afternoon before pre-dinner champagne in our large and very well designed room.
Dinner at Botanica was lovely and upon our return to the room, the 'romantic package' (a surprise for my husband) couldn't have been better - the fire was lit, music was playing and candles were placed throughout the room and bathroom where rose petals were strewn around. All we had to do was 'add water' and relax in the lovely big corner spa bath ... perfect !!
The bed was extremely comfortable and only wished that we could have purchased the lovely soft pillows to take home with us ....
Breakfast the next morning was a delight and we were glad that we didn't order a cooked portion as the fruits, yoghurt and breads were more than enough to provide a great start to the day.
Highly recommended hotel and restaurant ...
