I did not use the spa or other leisure facilities, which probably means this hotel was the wrong choice for me.
But they failed to get the basics right. They had overbooked and had to transfer me to a different hotel for the first night. The practicalities around this were not very smooth. The air-conditioning controls in my room were out of order, and it had to be remotely set from the reception. Most available power outlets in my room were dead. But worst, practically nothing was included in the room fee, and all extras were hideously overpriced - Wi-Fi, breakfast, drinks in the bar.
The location is a bit far away from everything, including a good selection of restaurants.
It was clear to see the cause of those high prices. Lavish decorations were everywhere, and there was always staff on hand, wearing fancy uniforms and addressing you politely. If this is your thing, then this hotel might be right for you. The room was quiet and clean.
