First of all, arriving at the hotel was in the middle of no where, the nearest town was a 25 minute walk away with any decent bars or food. When checking into the hotel itself, there was only 2 people working on the reception, this meant waiting around in the hotel lobby for an hour just to get our room key! (waiting at the airport was enough)
However once finally getting into the room, it was amazing! Cant fault the room at all. To be honest this was probably the best part of the hotel itself.
And the WORST of all was dinner time! Me and my girlfriend dreaded this part every night as there was ALWAYS the same BORING foods with no variety at all.
Try it, 1) a dish of pasta, 2) a dish of rice, 3) a meat dish, 4) a fish dish 5) a veg dish, 6) a potato dish, 7) & 8) will be two selected from rice,pasta,veg,potato. at the chefs discretion.
IF YOU DIDNT LIKE THE FOOD THEN YOU WENT HUNGRY which my girlfriend did twice in 6 meals! We even had to wait 30 minutes from once been shown to our table for a waiter to ask if we wanted a drink. The night before we wasn't even asked if we wanted any drink at all. Waiting staff needed in the hotel and trained to a higher level of service. For a 5* hotel is was rubbish!
Last but not at all least, the hotels entertainment was minimal.
There was no activities' during the day apart from yoga and wine tasting. (THANK GOD FOR EXCURSIONS) would be nice if there was activities around the pool so everyone can join in rather than nothing at all.
If you are looking for a relaxing holiday where you just want to sit by the pool in silence all day everyday with no dinner, than this is the hotel for you.
Would not recommend at all!
