We stayed there this past Friday. The place is absolutely stunning. Trully breathtaking. I think we where there on the first weekend they had had rain. Which meant mud and a whole lot of slippery surfaces. It was very cold, although the rooms where really cozy. They need to work on some design elements to accommodate for the changing season, such as a floor mat to avoid bringing all the mud inside after walking arownd. And maybe a rug next to the bed as the concrete floor was freezing. It is a place that you sort of want to stay at and not have to track arwond to go to another property. But you sort of are forced to leave the property for dinner as their restaurant is compleatly outdoors. We had lunch there and it was delicious, but brrrrrr. There is not enough chimeneas in the world to warm it up. We decided to go to Laja for dinner which was a 5 minutes drive. We asked for a taxi as we where a group of 6 ladies, the taxi charged us 15 dollars a person for literally a 5 minute drive. This was arranged by the loby and was total highway robbery.
Speaking of chimeneas, hanging out in the cute balconies drinking wine, overlooking the valley with a fire burning was amazing. Unfortunately with the rain, this was no longer a possibility. Overal, amazing space, worthy of a visit, but desperately need to make adjustments to this next season, to keep guest safe and comfortable. Saturday day the vibe in the reception area was amazingly cool. Too bad it was not happening Saturday night or they do not serve food there as it was really somewhere we would have loved to have been able to hang out at more. Keep In mind than in the rain, the only way to get places is using a range rover from the hotel and bring lots of warm layers, shoes win traction, and some slippers for the freezing floors!
