I echo other readers. If you want a top hotel with really beautiful villas, this is the place for you.
We were greeted at the reception with the most delicious tea I've ever tasted! Staff were generally friendly and helpful.
We stayed in a jacuzzi villa. Didn't use the jacuzzi because there were insects inside.. Aside from this, the villa was absolutely gorgeous. Three people shared this villa, which had two bathrooms! One large double bed and a separate bedroom with a single bed. The villa has glass walls (with curtains and shutters for privacy) which let in a lot of natural light, so we felt surrounded in nature! Turndown service included small souvenirs each evening which was a nice touch. Overall the villa was really beautiful and we felt really pampered.
We tended to eat dinner outside because, as mentioned in other reviews, the food is adequate at best. Food at breakfast was good and service was excellent.
The hotel is a short taxi ride from town (taxis are fairly inexpensive). Location is great because of the open space and mountain views.
