This is a beautiful boutique hotel: nicely designed rooms and helpful staff. The lobby has a nice aromatherapy apothecary look.
Rooms: From an aesthetic point of view, I appreciated the dark wood, the old-key style doors, the shutters separating the bed/bath. From a practical side though, it made the room very dark. I think the option of bright lights by the bed or lounge sofa would be nice, especially for reading in the evening. The deluxe size is perfect for couples, but I recommend getting a suite if you have a young child with you. Really liked the comfortable beds.
Amenities: This is a boutique hotel so you won't expect the same facilities as a large chain hotel, for example, expansive breakfast buffet, business center, etc. The pool is also a little small and has more of a fountain feel, but it seemed to satisfy the children staying at the hotel, ours included, just fine.
Spa: In terms of facilities and treatments, my husband and I both have had much better experiences elsewhere. I wish I had gone down the street to the other resort spa hotel, and my husband ended up going elsewhere in town the next day.
Lovely hotel for the price.
