After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor I decided to book a suite for a 3 night couple's getaway and it definitely lived up to the hype. The room was beautiful, well kept and clean. The suites with Jacuzzi have a very reasonable 90 minute a day policy which by far exceeds the use you will/should give the jacuzzi. Hot water was definitely not a problem, our suite came with a private heater that heated the shower in seconds. The fireplace was well equipped but we didn't use it for we found no need for it. The gardens surrounding the suites is very well maintained and a beauty to walk through, however it can feel a bit too steep when getting to the furthest suites but nothing that anyone with a below average physical state can't handle. The hotel area is extremely quiet which is a double-edged sword. On one hand rest is great because of the tranquility during the night, however since the hotel is so quiet any unwanted noise is perceived louder which can be an issue in the mid morning, if you had a long night ;) , once the staff and clients start roaming the area. The hotel grounds can also get a bit windy which can be loud inside the rooms. Of the 3 nights of our stay we only had one night where another couple stayed in the room in front of ours and noise from their room could not be heard inside ours, however conversation from the balcony of their room could be heard. On a side note the hotel is on a mountain side and opening a window at night with a light on will attract bugs that although harmless can be a nuisance. I would also beware of opening windows/balconies from 5-6:30 AM as this is the time where mosquitoes, although few, roam outside. On one of our nights a single, very loud mosquito, cost us around 2 and a half hours of sleep but it was our fault completely.
I feel like this hotel is definitely not a family hotel and is marketed accordingly for a romantic stay. It is important to note that every room in the hotel is unique providing lots of feels for planning and spicing up future stays. I would DEFINITELY recommend visiting the hotel's website, they have a very detailed catalog of the rooms with commodities, pictures and prices. I can vouch for the accuracy of the pictures of the room we stayed in. I would ALSO RECOMMEND you call the hotel for availability and specials, which are great. Booking directly with the hotel will give you a 30-35% discount on every weekday night, including Fridays, you book which is an unbeatable deal.
Overall a great stay that lived up to our expectations and in some regards exceeded them.
