The location, the staff facilities all fantastic. Unfortunately let down a little by incompetence and excessive charges.
Breakfast supposedly includes breakfast but it wasn't very forthcoming and I actually felt guilty for asking for a second glass.
The food was good but not fantastic. a meal ordered for room service took well over an hour, though the price was reduced for that. When dining with another couple my steak was very over done so I sent it back, the required rare steak hadn't appeared by the time my friends had finished their meals.
That said, its still fairly early days and these could be teething problems. I hope so as it really is a beautiful place.
