We're fast losing interest in the all inclusive hotel and this experience confirms the downward spiral in our expectations.
True, at least one of the al a carte restaurants performed reasonably well in both service and food presentation...think it was called the Sir or St George.
Steakhouse was quite good........Asian themed restaurant was buffet service...OK for a change of scene with food likewise.
This hotel is in one large building and a little bit of a novelty when most others in our recent experience have been blocks of rooms in large grounds....some of us enjoy a stroll after dinner.
There are many positive things in this hotel, however, from our point of view it was a little too holiday camp.
Perhaps we're getting a little older now and don't accept the shortfall in quality of service...imagination in entertainment.
Anyway, I wouldn't really put anyone off, neither would I be enthusiastic about going there again unless it was significantly lower in price.
