My wife and I stayed there for a couple of days and it was a perfect relaxing vacation. The room is very cozy and the decoration made you feel like you're at home. I liked the intimate atmosphere of the place. The bed was huge and comfortable and the AC didn't make too much sound, which is very good!! The staff was very friendly and polite.
I didn't use the spa, but if it is the same quality as the fitness center, pool and hot tub, I expect it to be amazing.
The food was very very good and at a reasonable price for a hotel. The make sure to stay a reference in the culinary industry for the region.
I don't recommend going there between season (that was my case) because most of the attractions of the cities nearby are closed.
The only downfalls for me were the bathroom, especially the shower that did not work properly, and the overpriced cooking classes. They should have special prices of guests and couples. For me, paying 2 full prices for the classes was impossible!! But, even though these little things, I sure recommend the place for a peaceful vacation.
