My husband and I stayed here for three nights following 7 nights in Cuba, before flying home. From the minute we walked in (looking bedraggled and exhausted following an overnight flight) to the minute we left, we had the most amazing time. As honeymooners we had our room upgraded and they were very kind to allow us an early check in (we requested in advance).
Our room was gorgeous, and our bed very very comfortable. My husband and I like modern hotels (but had to stay at The Ritz once) but we loved the decor. The best thing about this hotel is the touches - the towels, the toiletries (probably my favourite shower gel ever!), the turn down services - and the general hotel service. Anything you want or need can and will be done.
We went for dinner in the main restaurant and the food and service were perfect. The only problem we had was we booked the three course dinner du jour when we booked the room (£50 per person) but were presented with the main menu (we didn't know that at the time) so dinner was more expensive than we had assumed - although this was not a problem it would have been good to have been told. We ended up in the Tivoli bar every evening for cocktails. This bar has some of the BEST cocktails I've had (and those nibbles are amazing), just be prepared to spend £20 a cocktail (can't deny they were worth it)!
On the last morning I did not want to leave - it was the best hotel stay I'd had. We will definitely be returning and I cannot wait!
