Chose to stay at this hotel for my other half's birthday after our wonderful honeymoon experience earlier this year. Although I contacted the hotel to inform them of the reason for our trip and they acknowledged it, it was not acknowledged when we checked in or at any other time during our stay.
Because of the occasion, we upgraded to a club room. Probably wouldn't do it for a normal trip, but the quiet and civilised breakfast in the classy club room was incredibly relaxing. Breakfast is to be avoided in the regular restaurant-- very mediocre.
Speaking of breakfast, we slept in the first morning and missed the club breakfast, so ordered room service. Awful food, waited forever for them to deliver tomato sauce which didn't come the first time, and the worst thing-- eggshells in the eggs!
Will the hotel management please ban smoking around the pool-- this time around there always seemed to be one or two rude Europeans smoking and they were clearly in the minority-- why should their antisocial and unhealthy smoking be tolerated?
Club room was no different to regular room, really. Some issues with maintenance-- electricity socket wasn't working so made it impossible to style my hair on the first morning. Unacceptable for a 5 star hotel.
I was most disappointed this time around. Not a bad stay, but not memorable. Having had such a great experience before, I'm sad that our reason for staying was not acknowledged.
