Well, given the price one has to pay for a room in this hotel, one would expect nothing but the very best; from dusk to dawn.
I've stayed there for 5 days and 4 nights. I didn't have a single DECENT meal. I'm not saying good, I'm saying DECENT.
From breakfast to afternoon teas (this is an insult to all the afternoon teas everywhere in the world) I'm yet to choose a dish and be happy with it.
Pasta, salad, chicken, barbecue... You name it: Horrible!
Aside from the food, I must say: most of the staff is really pleasant. They are in a good mood no matter what. The chairs by the pools and oceans are comfortable as well...
- TV set: 3 channels, if much.
- Birds: EVERYWHERE!!!
- Front desk: 100% MANUAL!!!!
I had problems with my reservation, with my staying and with my checkout!
On my way back to the States I booked a cab a day in advance for 5am. I got at the front desk at 4:45am. Did my check out with an old gentleman really slow. When a taxi arrived, he said: " This is not to you. It's for another room". He refused to give me the cab that was waiting for a family that was already 15 minutes late.
I had to call another cab by myself because all he did was let me know that THAT cab was not for me.
