We stayed here for three nights in may and we not as positive as the rest of visitors.
To start with the positive: the staff is great. I contacted the hotel the day before and the offerd me the service to contact them as soon as I had arrived in the parking to send someone over to pick our lugage en support us t the hotel. We got a very warm welcome at the frontdesk. My laptop couldn't get a connectopn to their network so the tried to help me for half an our and when this didn't help I got a mini laptop from their desk (taht's what I call service). They also provide you with a map with the landmarks you should visit. The view from the top of the hotel is amazing
The breakfast and diner (one time) is excellent. The location is great: at the beginning of the shoppingdistrict and close to restaurants and bars.
What did I miss? I think a 5 star L hotel should have more amenities. There seems to be a pool a the beach but this wasn't open (and there was no alternative). The don't have a fitnessroom.
Further on we had a room on the second floor. The waterpressure wasn't that good and is has no shower. The room is also very dark. n the pictures we saw better alternatives.
