We just stayed in the new suites and I must say that they are pretty amazing. Beautifully decorated room with a 42 inch plasma. The view from our balcony was incredible. The bed was soft, yet firm... the way I like it.
The staff was great at the hotel, everyone was very friendly.
Improvements the hotel should make:
The Food... Breakfast was really good, but its hard to mess up breki unless you do not care. All other meals were not that great at all. You can tell they were somewhat trying.... however all the food had no flavor and was boring. My advice is to hire a very good executive chef to fix the problem. When you charge $400/night, I expect much more for food offerings. Also, get rid of the tico ketchup that tastes like bbq sauce. Your 99% foreign clientel expects Heinz.
Front Desk... They only had 1 check-in clerk for Friday and Saturday that we were there. The kid is very nice and works very fast, however he looks like he is 12 years old. This is the first face that your guests see when they come to your resort.... maybe you want your appearance to go more after the luxury crowd you are now going after.
Improvments to the Suites: The rooms did not have a hotel directory, wine opener or wine glasses. You have a mini-bar with 2 bottles of wine in it. At $400/night this is expected. Everything else was perfect. I absolutely loved the way you decorated the suites.
