At the first glance it looks like a paradise: the garden is beautiful. However, the service personal is not trained at all. During breakfast they took the same cake as guest did, we had to tell them several times to take the butter out of sun and to put more ice on it. We did not take the dirty dish away and did not understand English and were sometimes very rude. We saw also how the stuff slept on the tables in the guest area. The breakfast was normal and nothing special. The coffee was very poor. We tried also the lunch, which was absolute average and not very tasty. If you take an expensive room-> they are beautiful with view to the sea rose lakes. However, all other rooms have a view to the inner court and I can imagine that they are little darker. The air condition in the room was one of the noisiest we had during our Asian trip. Although the room is quiet new refurbished, the sink was stinky all the time.
Be careful with the washing service, we got back a brand new skirt with a hole in it (obviously they ironed it to hot). After long discussion, we got compensation for it but as it was brand new and very expensive and we did not get the whole amount, it was really annoying. All other clothes we gave to the washing service suffered as well and came back as they were 10 years older.
Altogether, we would not stay there again and we have to say that this maison does not offer a good value for money.
