Stayed here returning from islands before heading back to Edmonton Canada. Entering hotel one is greeted with a stated elegance and a promise of a better than average experience. Some of that unfolded, some of the experience was disappointing. We had no complaints about service as we didn't require anything extra during our stay. The breakfast buffet was average with usual fare found in most North American hotels. The view at the top is tremendous. We didn't get the evening experience as the prices are off the charts for the average traveler. Our room was very pleasant with a view of the pool but windows didn't open, however, we thought we had booked a room facing the Temple of Zeus. Getting to our room was a bit of a disappointment. We were in a room off the main corridor and in a wing. The carpeting in main corridor was a royal blue with gold, plush and very well kept. The carpet in the wing was a ratty very loose wrinkled budget roll that actually filled us with dread of the room we were heading toward when we first arrived. Fortunately, the room was spacious, clean and well appointed. On average, the experience was pleasant, but we won't likely stay there again. There are equally delightful properties in the immediate area offering the same views and a better value for the price.
