I stayed in the W Hotel (got a great deal for 4 nights) in the middle of August. This has to be some of the best service I've received at a hotel. From the moment we got out of the cab until we got back in it to return to the airport, nothing was too much trouble.
My friend unfortunately had her handbag stolen whilst we were there, the hotel made all the calls to cancel her phone contract etc and we were not charged a penny. We were even brought over a free round of drinks by the bar manager heard what had happened.
Lunches at the hotel were lovely, nice salad's with really fresh ingredients. Great Cocktails too. We ate in several of the restaurants below the hotel and all were very good, and not as expensive as I thought they might be.
The piste de resistance though was the view from our room. Floor to ceiling windows opened on to views of the beach and sea - FAB! The room itself was big, comfortable, and contemporary with one of the most comfortable beds i have every slept in.
Great location if you want to take advantage of the beach and sunbathing. Free sunbeds provided at the private strip of beach for hotel guests with waiter serves for drinks to keep you cool. Pool was a bit small for my liking and very crowded but the wet deck area turned into a great party venue in the evenings.
All in all a great trip and would definitely stay here again.
