The Hotel is simply amazing. The subtle luxury of refined simplicity, uncluttered and unpretentious. Very private and the staff is an attentive and discreet. I recommend it to everyone.

Chilling out on the bed in your hotel room watching television, while wearing your own pajamas, is sometimes the best part of a vacation.
