Everything was perfect. The complex with the cottages - the location by the sea (the many steps were a good exercise for the knees) - the food - the doctors - the therapists - the room and garden caretakers - the yoga and pranayama offer - the well-kept pool. The entire staff was friendly and accommodating. I felt very very comfortable!
