The common areas of this hotel are beautiful, the food and drink is of good quality and the views are spectacular. Despite this, the hotel is let down by outdated decor (at least in the room we stayed), lack of ice machine (although is available free of charge from room service), rubbish air conditioning in our room (but fine in the common areas), room service do not like to answer the phone; I had to call several times to get an answer and then a 35 min wait for a bucket of ice.
Also, there is a car park below the hotel. It's reasonably priced at £20 for 24 hours, but spaces are very limited and cannot be reserved in advance.
The breakfast was spectacular. If this was rated as a 3* hotel then I wouldn't moan about any of this, but you tend to expect more from a 4*.
