|My husband and I tied the knot here in December and it was an incredibly romantic experience. The setting is just breathtaking and we spent most of the time in the outdoor bubble bath on the terrace of our suite listening to the ocean with a bottle of bubbly. The food is absolutely incredible and the kind service made us feel comfortable and welcome. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, I'd definitely recommend it!|
