We only stayed one night as this was a short stop to our final destination. The hotel was about a 20 minute drive from the airport in a gated community where we felt very safe. We arrived about 10:00 at night and were wound up after an 11 hour flight from Amsterdam. We were greeted with champagne and snacks and after putting our baggage in our rooms, settled down in from of the outdoors fireplace for drinks and more snacks. We met with the owners who chatted with us for awhile and were told the staff would stay as long as we wanted and to not feel bad about keeping them up because they would receive overtime pay and this is what they do. The next morning we had a wonderful breakfast and did a little shopping before our early departure. I would highly recommend staying at this beautiful property.
