Good 6.0
Over rated
Clearly over rated, is not worth the price. Amazing landscape. Beautiful amenities. Room is spacious but bad quality construction in general - facilities work sometimes (AC, TV), WiFi is acceptable when it's working. Bad food in the restaurant. Very nice staff despite the clear lack of preparation.
