Firstly I wouldn’t hesitate to book the Valentine again. It is luxurious, clean, peaceful and well staffed. The food was very good and the service superb. The itinerary was very full but we didn’t mind flitting from one thing to another. We wanted to fit in as much as possible. I can’t fault the staff either, they were lovely. We stayed in a standard cabin. It was great. The bathroom is impressive. Lovely strong shower, a BATH, and clean toilet and sink. Bed was very comfortable in my opinion. There are a few things I would suggest to make the experience better, but only minor... I would certainly recommend anyone to use the Valentine. Well worth it! Often the bottles of water were not free ( only a small one for each excursion ) and I would expect free water for the price we paid for the trip. The terms of happy hour need to be clearer... Ie you pay for the most expensive drink and get the cheaper one free, not your second same drink for the same price... If that makes sense! And it would have been nice to have a bit longer in the cave on the last day. All minor suggestions... The biggest thing for me though was the water. Overall the experience is amazing, and the staff very attentive. Visited May 2013
