The Boardwalk Hotel is a typical five star luxury hotel with excellently trained and attentive staff. What makes it special is that it has included some of the old world charm into the decor. It's not all glitz as many Casino Hotels tend to be. The technology in the rooms is great. Open the door and the lights automatically come on. A single switch at your bedside or at the exit switches all lights off. Spacious elegant bathrooms, excellent sea views and of course great linen all add to the charm.
The restaurant is elegant and offers a pretty good variety. Most meals were excellent but I would not recommend the Tandoori Chicken as it's quite bland. That's the only reason I didn't give this establishment a full five stars.
After all when you stay in a five star establishment your expectations are high with everything.
