Just recently stayed here for 5 nights, the on property services are amazing. The location is central to a number of area attractions. The one item however that stands above all is the staff, especially Natalia. They all went above and beyond to make my families stay special.

This hotel is beautiful! The pool and thermal pool are great, the views are perfection, the staff are amazing, and the grounds are beautiful. My only critique is that the wifi is not great. I usually had little to no reception in my room and fair reception outside our room. Other than the wifi I had nothing else to complain... More

We probably got lucky considering it was low season which allowed us to stay at places normally out of our budget, and thank goodness for that!
