There is no doubt this is a beautiful hotel. The gardens are stunning with many amazing flowers. Lovely infinity pool and great view of the mountains. It was relaxing by the pool and plenty of shady places to be on your own if you wanted. Great location with a short drive into town. However, personally I didn't feel at ease in this hotel and felt it was a bit formal for my liking. Although the living room had lovely sofas etc it didn't feel as if you would go in and 'disturb' the 'look'. The buffet at breakfasts were a bit on the sparse side and not replaced too quickly when they foods ran out! And, although you were offered 'eggs' it didn't feel you were encouraged to ask for other items. I did ask for bacon and mushrooms one morning and got one small thin slice of bacon and 1/4 of a mushroom! Maybe we had been spoilt at all the other hotels we stayed in where the food was always plentiful with more coffee and teas offered.
