    A very high professionalism of the staff, except in the restaurant where the waiters were a little lost, which is rather rare for a hotel in this category.

    Es befindet sich in einem ruhigen und schönem Wohnquartier, was den aufenthalt sehr angenehm macht. Krine Hektik zu spüren.

    Exclusive

    Grandios! Das gesamte Areal ist ein einziger Traum! Das ist, begonnen mit der charmanten Begrüßung, den traumhaften Bungalows/Villen, dem phantastischen Abendessen bis zum wunderbaren Frühstück- alles lässt sich nur mit Superlativen beschreiben. Die deutsche Hotelerie sollte sich hier einiges"abschauen"- es lohnt sich. Wir kommen sicher wieder!! Vielen Dank.

    Fabulous

    Superlage, schöne Aussicht. Schöne Hotelanlage. Das Zimmer hat uns nicht gefallen, wir bekamen anstandslos ein anderes.

    Check in etwas chaotisch, z.T. schien das Personal etwas überfordert.
