8/10 Very good

Almost perfect.
Great location with beautiful unobstructed views of the Gallface Greens and the Indian Ocean. Staff were friendly, but not all were welcoming or attentive. Was not very impressed by the food either. Well-kept lawn and grounds. Beautiful lobby. Beautiful, clean and impressive room (luxury sea view room). Impressive bathroom, but hot water was not hot around 9-10 pm both in the shower and also in the tub. Loved the pool area, though could not test it. Can recommend to others.
