Service and Staff

Our room Stewart Jose Paul was excellent our cabin was always clean and tidy and he made sure we had plenty of bottled water. Erwin in the Glass House was also an excellent waiter, every time we visited the bar he made sure a wine that I liked was available and he would go to the restaurant to obtain the wine if it was not in the chiller
