We arrived here after traveling for 35 hours, and we found it the perfect place to relax and recuperate. The shuttle to the hotel turned out way less than expected, and we got a free room upgrade as well. I've traveled all over the world and never seen such a unique hotel; you could explore for hours and still not find everything there is to see. The backyard is serene and peaceful, with all sorts of animals that accompany it. We found a huge tortoise walking the grounds, and made friends with the two dogs that live there as well. (The husky is shaved from the head down and it's the cutest thing I've ever seen). The breakfast was wonderful with fresh squeezed orange juice, and eggs any way you'd like. The staff was super attentive and catered to your every need. The only critique I have is more menu options for dinner, but besides that there were no complaints.
