Having travelled a great deal deal in the past few years both myself and my partner were amazed at the superb quality of this resort. From the moment we arrived Don and the team were remarkable - attentive, friendly, interested and genuinely keen to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The rooms were a creation in themselves...flat screen TV, air conditioning, a wonderfully comfortable bed and all facilities including internet access included...such an unusual but pleasurable change from the norm. With spa facilities that were superb, kayaking equipment, a pool and restaurant to die for we were totally pampered and had a fabulous time indeed. Just to pick up on the food aspect in a little more detail...forget Hester Bloomenthal and the posturing, demonstrative pseudo-creationism...try the whole menu here...going to Heaven would be less pleasurable believe me - the rack of lamb is something to trade your grandmother in for without a second thought....go there...its cool, comfortable, a gorgeous location and has staff that care - a real bonus...
