The gardens and view are lovely. The room was clean and well taken care of. I particularly enjoyed the variety of the meals. One night dinner was served poolside. Seeing that the dining room can be hot and feel very close it is nice that lunch is served near the pool. I wouldn't pay any extra for a particular room...
