It was amazing experience, however i had asked the hotel staff to leave a card or something since it was my husband's birthday but once we got to the room there was nothing and i had to go and personally request them. I don't see the point of filling up the requirement request. A little disappointment but other than that everything was amazing. Felt like we were in heaven.

Delightful hotel great location. Unfortunately our dinner was disappointing as the main meals were served cold which made the meal very unappetising.
