    My husband and I had a pre-baby retreat at this amazing Belmond property. We’ve stayed at several Belmond locations in the past, and this was our favorite due to the beautiful location, amazing facilities and top-notch staff.

    Nothing! It was perfect!

    Best sleep ever at a hotel! Bedding, pillows, mattress are superb. Bathrooms are amazing - a little small but that’s ok.

    No.

    Staff was helpful and courteous.

    Upon arrival, the room given to us was overlooking a huge construction dumpster. We requested a different room, and were reassigned.
