My husband and I treated my mother to a stay at this glorious spot for her 70th birthday. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like absolute royalty! Everything I had arranged beforehand - right down to the 'Happy Birthday xxx' writing in chocolate on the side of her plate, to the lovely pedicure session (which was swapped from the massage) was just perfect. My only gripe is that we only stayed for one night! Boo hoo ... The Resort is so clean and luxurious - honestly, it's just amazing! I would say, however, that it is more suited for couples than it is for groups ... lots of couples seem to take advantage of the spa weekend excursions, and at dinner and breakfast, we were the only party of three. Re the food - absolutely amazing - even better than what you see on MasterChef! I don't think I've ever said 'Yum' so many times in one weekend. We'll definitely be going back soon (just the two of us). The staff are just so fabulous - friendly, attentive ... perfect!
