What a place to spoil yourself! It already started before my trip with very good correspondence with the reception and concierge about my stay and the activities.

This is a great place for multi generations to be together. Lots for kids to do, and lots for parents or grandparents to enjoy. The hiking is wonderful and the food and hospitality outstanding. They have a variety of pools to enjoy.
