The hotel itself is in great condition with beautiful spacious apartments. The staff were extremely attentive and all the interactions and dealings with them were superb. The transfers to and from the airport all went very smoothly. The included breakfast was very good and cooked to order. Overall the personalized service is what makes this place stand apart.

There are balconies off of every room and a big balcony with a dining table off the living room. The kitchen was stocked with everything you would need to cook a gourmet...
