I was torn trying to write this review. On one hand, the hotel is great. the rooms are really big and the surroundings are breath taking. However, we had a terrible experience with the service:
1. One of the two mornings we stayed we were waken up at 6am by helicopters that were landing in the property to pick up other guests. The noise didn't stop till well gone 7 - make sure you take ear plugs when you go - you may need them!
2. The swimming pool area is very small for the size of the hotel, so I found myself having to relax on the floor as there were no chairs left! (although some of them were 'taken' by guests that never came back to them)
3. There was a wedding on the day we checked out - we were quite literally asked to go at 1pm although we planned on using the facilities for a bit longer - we weren't told this when we booked, which was very disappointing - again, you may want to check this particularly if you have a late flight in the evening and hope to use the hotel facilities till then.
