Part of the hotel has been renovated, part has not. The rooms on the West Wing are quite poor, with some overlooking a car park rather than the sea. We were told our room overlooked the pool and sea but it did not. We eventually managed to change to a much better room but it took some persuasion. The service was OK but not brilliant. For example, the towels are collected for washing about 9:00 am but fresh towels are not provided until much later. The reason given was that there are not enough! The Japanese restaurant is superb. The Capitana Restaurant is good but not as good as the Japanese one.
Excellent gift shop for many varieties of carvings etc. but the staff do not arrive on time to open it and the staff are not particularly helpful or friendly.
Overall an OK stay and we would go back - provided we could get one of the better rooms again!
