Very Good8.0
Really nice place with just a few issues
I really liked the resort and my room. The was decorated in unique ways (unique lamps, headboard, chairs) which I really enjoyed. Good food at the restaurant, hiking trails and spa services. I felt it was either a little understaffed or under managed. There was no offer of help with our bags or valet our car (even though they had valet service). The heater had a vibration that was annoying and the candles in the room didn't work, when we told the hotel about this they sent an engineer who was unable to fix the vibration and they just removed the candles. We were offered a new room. Room service trays were left in the hall for many hours and the ladies locker room ran out of disposable cups and the towels were overflowing and should have been attended to. They did give me a discount because of all this, which was nice. Unfortunately, it is the little things that can make a big difference in the overall enjoyment.

Wonderful location, definitely isolated from everyone, which can be nice! The staff is very friendly, rooms are excellent, the bar and other on-site spots are excellent. Definitely enjoyed my stay. Didn't like I couldn't smoke anywhere though. Oh well.
