We booked an ocean view room (although unsure if they actually gave us one) which was just stunning, however we accidently got our dates wrong and arrived a day early so stayed in an Ozone Halll the night before which was EXACTLY THE SAME. The interior of the hotel is unique and just gorgeous and the rooms include a beautiful view and it's ridiculously comfortable beds made it hard to get up in the morning. We looked forward to a balcony bath tub for months before our trip, only to find that there was none. There are lots of stairs! We were in room 408 on the bottom and had about 5 flights. By the way if you stay in that room the bath tub plug is broken. It was before we got there so couldn't have a bath :( I highly doubt that they will do anything to fix it as staff do not seem interested in anything guests have to say. Breakfast at Tiffin Mama was great with 3 choices plus a coffee. Hired the scooter most of the days we were there and gave my bf's passport as bond. On the last night we got a dodgy looking one but didn't care too much. The following day upon checking out the lady had trouble finding the passport! She found it after 20 minutes (in between doing other things unrelated to this task) with the taxi man out the front who hires scooters! Yeppp nice of them to tell us that it wasn't their scooter and they were giving it to some random. The lady then asked us to wait while they checked whether there was any damage to the room. We sat patiently for 20 minutes. 20 minutes you ask? They forgot to tell us that this task had been completed. Don't get me wrong, this place is fabulous but as someone who works in Tourism, I really believe that the staff need a lesson or two in manners as they do not do this fine hotel any justice. Not once did I walk through the foyer to a smiling face, only staff chatting to each other or watching things on their phone. Stay here for the gorgeous location, however do not stay here if you are looking for the whole package
