The bathroom was spectacular, but the shower leaked all over the bathroom. The glue for the glass panels was smeared at the top of the glass. Tub was nice. Makeup mirror was low, no seat or light. Unable to book a spa treatment, although I emailed weeks in advance. Unable to get a taxi to get to a tour. Had to take the bus, and hope to get there. (we did) We ate in the dining room. Shared truffle potatoes. My husband and I were both suck that night (vomiting) and no, no covid. It was a nice place, but could have been nicer. Like a facade instead of substance.
