The hotel is in walking distance to lots of restaurants and attractions. Hotel staff was very friendly and our room was serviced appropriately everyday. The only downside is that the cost of the spa was almost as much as our 5-day stay in the hotel! Read less

The check in experience was flawless and the rooms beautiful. The communal areas are stylish and the waiting staff very attentive to your needs. Breakfast was a feast and the concierge staff very helpful. What stood out was the friendliness and willingness to help shown by all the staff.

The Lux room is wonderful and the view amazing. The staff is very kind and caring up to a point. I really enjoyed my stay here and would come again if few things are solved in the meantime. The breakfast is not well organised, and the queue is very long. Yesterday my husband waited half an hour, then decided to go shopping in the meanwhile, came back, and the queue was still as long as before! He queued all together for 50 minutes to be placed. There are lots of tables free, just not anyone letting you in very soon. I had similar experience this morning and another quest complained to me about the same thing, so I guess it’s a standard here. If you decide to extend your stay for a day and have asked to keep the same room for that separate extra booking, be prepared to receive an angry call from a member of the staff asking you to leave after 12 pm when your original stay ends. Otherwise, a lovely hotel with the best view in town! Read less

At Breakfast. You had to ask for everything. Only one day was coffee offered when sat down. Super pleasant staff. Just not too attentive. sadly, you couldn’t even go in the pool. It was filthy dirty. Full of yellow stuff at the bottom of the pool
