It's difficult to fully express the level of disappointment that this place generated. I selected this based on the location, amenities etc and if I'm honest, partially because the price was "reassuringly expensive". Unfortunately the disappointment began before we even got there. I booked using booking.com. When my free cancellation period was over, I was informed by the hotel that...

We too encountered the system error and they tried to put us in a 2star hotel for the 1st night. I wasn't happy that the manager spoke to my driver instead of me. After I showed them what I paid, they managed to find a beautiful 5Star replacement that we wished the error had been for both nights. I have...

We attended their 'new years eve' dinner ...which was outdoors and all seemed lovely.... the 'ran out' of the least expensive wine at the beginning of the night but yet...

Although the room was lovely once it was adequately cleaned & was supplied with hot water, this took a day and a half to rectify. Wouldn't have been so upset but we arrived on Christmas Eve and couldn't shower or use all facilities in the room until the afternoon of Christmas Day. We had a number of issues with our...

Stayed here for 6 days and couldn't speak more highly of the room, the staff and the setting. Set in jungle, in front of a lake and mountains we had such a peaceful, relaxing holiday. Our room was huge and with stunning floor to ceiling windows and so we really got to enjoy the view. Was also fabulous to have...
