Modern hotel with comfortable room. Dinner service in the restaurant was very poor, the food was pretty good. In an isolated location with beautiful grounds.

The room service, food, trails, hotel room was absolutely splendid. There was truly nothing missing. Anything you could think of to want or have was available at the resort. Not to mention the helpful employees all around. My daughter also loved the very fun yet well throughout Fairy Trail. Thank you for a memorable stay!
