This hotel should have a million and a half stars, just like the beautiful crystals surrounding the bar! We were greeted with a glass of champagne and a warm towel amidst the lovely reception area. We were the only Americans in the hotel, and the staff went out of their way to be helpful and we were most comfortable. In particular, our server interpreted the menu, and she did her utmost to make our meals most enjoyable. All means were superb. The view from our room was spectacular. We enjoyed the thermal pool, massages, relaxation areas, the piano bar, dessert in the afternoon, our comfortable room, excellent service at the bar and cigar area and the library. We were most impressed with the staff, who were friendly, professional and efficient. We hope to make this a yearly trip.
