    3/5

    • Liked: Cleanliness

    Had to queue for breakfast each day, even though we paid in advance, and once there the offering was average. Error on check-in charging almost $1100 to my credit card in stead of $200 then told the credit may take up to two weeks. Expensive room had already been paid for in advance. Many of the staff were very good, however there seemed to be a feeling we were in a cheap resort where staff were manically busy. Felt more like a theme park than a 5-star hotel. As a person who strongly believes that if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all, I am willing to say our 25th Wedding Anniversary weekend was a solid 2 stars out of 5. Definitely not the place for a special celebration.

    The room was stunning, massive and so much more than what we could have imagined! The hotel provides free bottled water which was a massive plus for us. Super helpful in finding good places to eat, and the Black restaurant in the Star was incredible.
