Where to start, travelling solo was always a difficult one, where to stay, will I be safe, will I be bored?? Right from the time of arrival to checking out this hotel and most importantly the staff did not disappoint. Check in: I arrived early and the lady on reception made sure I could get into my room earlier than planned, and in the meantime I went for breakfast at Mezzerie buffet restaurant. Rooms: A standard room still has the ‘wow’ factor. HUGE bed, lovely bathroom, walk-in closet and a lovely balcony. Pools: I only went to the adult only pool each day, and the larger pool is more for families. I have to give a shout out to Dennis who at the adult pool each day had my towels, water bucket with ice and umbrella up. Each and every morning without fail. What an asset to WA. I watched how attentive he was to everyone around the pool. The adult pool is a quiet serene place to switch off and really relax. Restaurants: I ate in the buffet restaurant called Mezzerie most evenings which has the most variety of food you can imagine. Breakfast and evening dinner never disappointed. On my last morning, Alex from the Mezzerie restaurant presented me with a lovely personalised card and it touched me so much. So huge thank you. I went one evening to the Michelin star restaurant by Heinz Beck and this was such a lovely experience. A real treat. I even got to go into the kitchen to meet the chef and the sous chefs and watch them make the fabulous dishes. A few occasions I went to Lao, the Asian inspired restaurant and this was just beautiful. The portions are well adequate and I chose this restaurant as my last evening treat. I was presented with a card at the end of my meal, thanking me for my visit and to hope I have a safe journey home. A real nice touch. Staff: All of the staff here are so friendly, welcoming, kind, they couldn’t do enough for you. What I liked is they are not too ‘in your face’. You’re always greeted with a smile and they all remember you personally. For example I would tell a few members of staff about certain activities I was doing during my trip, and they all remembered, asking how it was and did I have fun. This is the best thing about this hotel, the staff. All of them. From the guys at the front of the hotel greeting you when you arrive back to the hotel, to the staff in the restaurants, around the pool, the reception desk staff and even the house keeping staff. I will 1000000000% be coming back. I wasn’t afraid to be here on my own for 10 days, in fact, it’s the safest I’ve felt. Would definitely recommend! Read less
