My husband and I stayed 3 nights. It was very clean and quiet. We went swimming early in the mornings and had the pool to ourselves. The homemade breakfasts were very good--they even got me a diet Coke since I am not a coffee or juice drinker. I loved the quiet room and blackout curtains (we were on the east...

My husband and I stayed here to get away together for our 15th wedding anniversary and had an amazing time. All the staff were friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed the quiet and quaintness of the resort. The breakfast at the bistro was tasty and the margaritas were good too. I would definitely recommend the Chateau to friends. I...

The Chateau is cute and quaint. Our welcome was not the most pleasant. The woman did not provide much information or instruction on how things worked there and didn't even greet us when we entered. All of the other staff members we encountered were very friendly and helpful! The room was well kept and clean. The bed was comfortable and...

The jaw dropping views, the rooms, the conveniences were stellar. The staff was welcoming and treated us as one of the family. The breakfast, the food and wine were terrific, especially the flatbread pizza cooked in their outdoor oven. Can't wait to return. Incidentally, you don't have to be a guest to eat there for dinner and enjoy the view.

We spent three nights at the chateau. Our room - in a separate villa close to the lake was simply great. The bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on our small terrace in the evening when the temperature had gone down to 30 degrees celcius from 40 + during the day overlooking the lake and watching the turtles. The...
