Though the hotel was a bit far out of town, the view afforded by that fact was amazing!
Read through some reviews to get a sense so you are prepared before you go.
Yes, the staff seem young but they were never not helpful, just a bit inexperienced. They always helped with contacting our tour operators and anything else we needed.
Yes, you are the first on and last off for the tours but it's not that bad.
Yes, the free shuttle is only at night but again, just know that before and be prepared to taxi during the day.
Room was clean, bed was comfortable and even though we didn't have a suite with a view, the grounds offer plenty of opportunity for enjoying the scenery.
Breakfast buffet was good, packed lunches were generous and dinner was also good.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends!
