The staff were super efficient and made us feel very welcome - the food was excellent ! The three dogs were very we’ll behaved and added to the welcome by making us feel very much at home. The decor and furnishings of the building are exquisite ! One negative was although there was place for mosquito netting over the bed it was not supplied - there are tons of mosquitoes !
