it is hard to describe the Caruso going beyind what has been written already. I will always remember how attentive staff were (although checkout lady should have been far friendlier given what I paid), the great feeling when I dived into the infinity pool, the breathtaking views, the wonderful drinks, the best (!) breakfast I have ever had (and I am a food nut)...YET, it all comes at an exaggerated price. I was on my honeymoon so was quite happy to splash out for a few days. Yet, upon reflection I have to recognize that probably Caruso is not worth the money that it charges. The rooms are sensational (some slight defects in the second room we stayed at, but really minor stuff), the food is superb etc etc. However...again...having visited tonnes of hotels also in expensive parts of the world, the prices here were quite simply astronomical.
