Exceptional 9.6 From 157 reviews

Good 6.0
Rude and inconsiderate management.
The property is beautiful. Communication with Management before and on arrival at the hotel was extremely disappointing. Guest relations manager Edwina was rude and condescending. We booked a suite and were informed before hand that it sleeps 3 adults. There was 1 king bed (for 2 adults) and 1 fold away children's metal spring bed for the 3rd adult. This was unacceptable and management were not willing to change in any way shape or form at the hotel because we had booked through hotel.com and not directly with them. Instead the Manager Raphaelo asked me to check-in to another room for 2 nights at an additional expense. I was not willing to do this as the website states the suite sleeps 3 adults and therefore as the hotel did not have the facilities for this, the management tried to pressure me into paying for another room or sleep on the child's foldable bed which was extremely uncomfortable and painful for the back for 2 nights.

Excellent property with an amazing setting. Truly fairytale in its experience. Activity management lacked, with very minimal spots and most activities restricted or unavailable even though resort was not very busy.
