Again we stayed at The Carlton Intercontinental for a little over two weeks. It was a Surprise booking as we had been led to believe that the hotel would be closed for major renovations so we were glad of the opportunity.
Being a Royal Ambassador in the Priority club loyalty scheme we gained a double upgrade to a sixth floor sea view room.
As usual the service, including a VIP welcome was excellent. We were given a late check out as our return flight was quite late.
We chose not to use the hotel beach as we found another beach more to our licking a couple of minutes away.
We took breakfast in the hotel, another priority club benefit being two for one on the inclusive rate.
We were recognised by name by many of the staff who even remembered our preferences from previous stays. The Staff were always offering information, much of this, as in the past, has added to the enjoyment of our stay.
We would always recommend this hotel particularly for Ambassador Priority club members.
Some people have said it seems Old Fashioned; it is this that gives it the charm that it has had for 100 years. We know that that renovations are due however I hope it is not made into a modern Palace that seem so boring as many in some middle East countries are.
