I was awed and totally impressed by the 5 star greeting, the over-the-top amenities, the highly professional staff, location, whales and the can-do attitude by exemplified by all that, if I lived closer (I'm in N.Y., USA), I'd take up residence at least once a month. It's not cheap, but it is the most I have ever received for my hard earned dollar.
The nicest component, and there were many, was that everything was included: there were no additional charges for wifi, laundry, wine at dinner, contents of room refrigerator, etc.
And then.....the chef arrived to explicate the menu, offering suggestions and/or modifications to meet any special requests you might have. Ummmmm good!
