Quiet and very pleasant

Previous reports gave us an understanding of what to expect so we were well prepared before we arrived. Room #7 is full of old world charm but with a new extravagant bathroom. Twin showers but twin basins would have been better... (seldom seen in all but very few hotels). Expensive decor and a large room. Continental breakfast with an interesting homemade quince jam... great coffee with refills... served near the large pool. Pool area great which led out to an extraordinary 'cactus garden'. I'm not into cactus but these were huge and in flower, something not to be missed. I should add that the pool was a little substandard and needed cleaning but either way, as we were not wanting to swim, it didn't worry us. Those with children may think differently.

Authentic Disappointment

Certainly not our cup of tea. The establishment promotes mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health: we put off returning to the accommodation because it was depressing, uncomfortable and dark (3 of the 4 lamps didn't even have bulbs) - not good for our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. The included breakfast was limited, we saw noone save the masseuse and the one of the kitchen staff during our stay and there was no housekeeping even though the shower had no screen and the bathroom remained saturated throughout the day. Certainly not worth $200 a night.
