10/10 Exceptional

I loved the lush, green and spacious gardens and the fact that my room had a patio. The birds were everywhere. I appreciated that all room entrances were from the garden instead of indoor hallways like most hotels. The staff were friendly and helpful and the restaurant had great breakfasts and dinners. It was a great place to stay for 3 weeks.
