Absolutely delicious, the staff are also very welcoming and attend your every need. Sebastian especially and Claire are wonderful and friendly. The food is top notch! Make sure you ask two days in advance for a reservation so they can play for you.

This is a smaller boutique resort, while menu is limited for dinner, it was excellent and plentiful three-course meal. Continental buffet breakfast was very good. Excellent lunches at outdoor restaurant included wonderful poisson cru, variety of freshly made sandwiches with sides.
