Negative Reviews

It’s expensive

There is no such thing as an inexpensive stay here, but overall the experience is worthy of the price tag From food costs in the restaurants to room rates, you can expect to dole out a significant amount for this luxury resort.

Refurbishment is needed in some areas

While the overall décor is rich and majestic, there are some spots that need attention, particularly in rooms For example, you may see areas where paint needs to be retouched, or furniture that requires minor repairs.

More suited to couples than families

All things considered, this resort offers a romantic, relaxing escape that meets the most discriminating standards That said, it may not be the most appropriate or fun environment for small children, and it can be pricey for families as well.
