Without a doubt, the BEST vacation ever! The hotel was beyond our expectations. If you can afford it; we recommend the Junior Suite Superior- it is absolutely worth it. The staff was amazing, especially Reynard (restaurant supervisor), Jocksan and Henri. Also, we had two spa treatments at their Serenity Spa. Simply fabulous! The masseuses were outstanding! What had initially started...

I've stayed in some very nice hotels in my life but this place ranks in the top 3. The service, the room, the public areas, EVERYTHING was just beautiful. Sunset in the infinity pool should be on everyone's bucket list. I was a little worried that my room wouldn't be all that great since it wasn't one of their more...

We had breakfast at Anfiteatro Bar and Restaurant. The Shrimp Burrito is amazing! We had a party of 14. The view is breathtaking! It's beautiful. The prices were very reasonable as well, especially since we were not guest of the hotel and just went for breakfast. Fun ride up the mountain as well.
