Stayed many times over the years. Read many of the reviews. Agree, magical place, peaceful, beautiful. Staff and service is second to none. A place to relax. But...the "Great Hall" is now not so great. Used be warm and comfortable with inviting seating around 2 fireplaces. Interesting, unique decor...where did those monkey chandeliers go? Now, generic furnishings with uncomfortable high back chairs. The music room is no longer. Pool no longer secluded with the hedging cut down. Pool seating replaced with leftover pool chairs from Manele. No umbrellas. Gardens greatly simplified, more like a giant lawn. Various garden ornaments and plantings gone. Waterfall and bamboo grove bare. Many 5 star rating now. Can you imagine, it was even better? Hate to be harsh but...Always look forward to going back but now...???
