There are so many good things to say about this property its difficult to know to begin, however, apart from flawless housekeeping, well maintained grounds, friendly and attentive staff and good food, it was the outstanding levels of service and the "can do" attitude of the staff that really stands out. Nothing is a problem here and every request no matter how mundane was fulfilled with a smile and that aforementioned can do attitude. I loved the pool area and the jetty restaurant at the end of the pier. I indulged in a number of treatments at the on-site spa, all of them good and can be recommended. I stayed in a garden room and was perfectly happy with it. The huge bathroom, walk in closets and good quality linen and towels all added to a sense of pure luxury.
Another impressive aspect is the hotels attempt to reduce its carbon footprint. Motion sensor lighting in public area bathrooms among other small but important efforts are well received.
In short, a great hotel with outstanding service and I most certainly would return.
