    Breakfast was great. The property is beautiful and has an interesting history. The staff is very friendly. I appreciated the location because it had easy access to most areas of the island but was quiet and easy to park. A lot of good restaurants...

    It is a fantastic location and is very tastefully decorated. Modern but keeping the historic charm of an old Monastery. The staff are incredibly helpful and accommodating as well. Loved our stay.
