This was are 6th visit to the JA Ocean View and we found it very strange that only 4 of the original staff were working there. We were very pleased to see Mary, Ramesh, Miceala and Daminda are still working there, as we know they always go the extra mile when doing their job. All the other staff were very helpful and friendly. I have two comments regarding the shower and the pump toiletries in room 706. The shower was very out of date for a 5* hotel as it was not adjustable and the head also was not adjustable. The pump toiletries were very hard to squeeze to get the contents out. Breakfast on the whole is excellent with the exception of the egg products, which had to be ordered when sitting down at your table not knowing when they would arrive. The old system of having a Chef cooking fresh eggs out in the restaurant is far superior to what it is now. The room we were in didn’t get any sun on our balcony throughout the day. Read less
