Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
The room, view and hotel were amazing. What was not so amazing was that even though they were booked to capacity, there was hardly any staff. Ringing concierge, housekeeping etc, just rang out. Waiting for lifts could take up to 15 minutes. You had to book a time slot to use the pool and could not go more than once a day. We came back to our room at 4:30 in the afternoon for a nap before heading off for the night to find that they had not made up the room yet. For a 5 star hotel with pricing to match, it felt very much like a 3 star hotel that was just making a money grab.

Disliked: Staff & service
Management didnt bother to look into the special occasion we visited the hotel for. We didnt expect much. A welcome card or a tiny box of choclate would have done the trick. Even mention on your room TV that its our sons birthday would have helped. We have visited so many hotels and at least one staff member wish when they see the noes in the booking. Totally ignorant staff. Also the room given to us at first was no where close to the price we paid for.

Beautiful hotel, even though we weren’t able to enjoy many of the amenities due to the fact that we have to book to go to the pool or bar (which we weren’t aware of). Also, valet double charged me and I’m still waiting for my refund.
