Was the airport pick-up an additional charge or included in your room charge?
It was an additional charge, I don't recall how much, but do remember it was reasonable.

I don't think its the ideal place for children as its a sofisticated up market and quiet hotel with formal dining and luxurious furnishings ! I agree with everyone on this score !

"One of the luxury suites - Go for it!"
"We had the penthouse suite and the pool villa. Love both but if in a honeymoon definitely the penthouse suite."
"Consider getting a suite. Several have very special amenities."
"Pay up if you can and get their "pool villa" with your own plunge pool (that's what we had)"
"Room number 9 has an outdoor private patio and table, bath and shower. Spectacular second floor location."
