        the location was superb. argentian waiter in restaurant was very attentive and well training; charming fellow.

        way overpriced. 2 bottles of waiwere sparking water = $25.00 (1.99 ea at coundown). reception unattended; and when he arrived he chatted to his boss on the phone leaving us waiting. breakfast buffet had inedible eggs

        We had a birthday dinner for our daughter. The food and the service was excellent and the cake, not even asked for, was superb.
