Idyllic vacation
Our stay was all that we hoped for. The site is beautiful and the service is impeccable. We found the staff to be gracious, welcoming, and all helped make our stay a vacation we will always remember.

Exceptional 10.0
A truly beautiful spot with nice facilities and kind, hospitable staff and management! The only possible downside is the fairly firm mattress, but this was overshadowed by the beuaty of the surroundings!

The best hotel I have ever stayed in
I have never stayed anywhere quite like this and would advise that you install another option that is higher than "exceptional". Cannot rate the hotel high enough, for quality, location, scenery, facilities, food, drink, flag and best of all, the staff.
