I am afraid this is not quite a five star hotel, but with a little more thought and staff training it could be. I stayed in one of the two storey suites; next time I won't bother, although I will return.
Friendly, cheerful and helpful desk staff.
Large Pool with plenty of available sun loungers.
Comfortable mattress and beds.
Large walk in shower.
Lots of toiletries and little free gifts. A nice touch.
In room Nespresso machine with limitless expresso pods on request. Great for coffee addicts.
Food is always luke-warm by the time it gets to the roof top restaurant.
Room service staff English is poor so they don't understand simple requests.
Hot water availability variable.
No proper desk to work from in the two storey Suites.
You need a degree in electrical engineering to work out the lighting switches between the two levels.
Curved headboard means no bed side table. Very impracticable leaving drinks on the floor etc.
