This hotel almost got 5 stars on trip adviser- given the wonderful soft bed, beautiful and quiet rooms, fantastic shower, lovely cocktails, delicious burgers, good breakfast and exceptional staff.
The only two issues were:
1. the gym is useless as it only really has a handful of cardio machines and no weights or mats or non-cardio workout (there is one non-cardio machine but it's actually not very good).
2. Our late night room service arrived an hour after we ordered it and after about 4 conversations with the reception staff to find out the status of our order and when we kept being advised for a good 20 minutes that it was on its way. The staff were very apologetic but it doesn't make up for having to wait when you are in a 5 star hotel.
All in all, this is one of the most comfortable luxurious hotels we have stayed in and we look forward to our next visit.
