A beautiful hotel, Great service, great location, lovely suite. We only stayed two nights and it was not long enough. Food was excellent, even for me, a vegetarian. The staff went out of their way to look after us, especially Amanda. Constructive comments are that the bathroom was too small for the suite we had and that the tour desk needs to be more aware of the tours she sent us on. We went on a whale watching tour with Dyer cruises and they spent the first twenty minutes at the shark cage diving. This was horrific for us to witness, basically treating sharks as circus animals, which is now banned in most other countries as inhumane. We were very sad that we spent the best part of a day on this. We would have loved to spend time with Dave if we had known he did this.(we met him by chance on the path).
We would love to visit again sometime.
