We are just back from 10 days at the colony.The hotel decor ir lovely.The hotel is spotlessly clean.The staff are all so attentive and really helpful.We had a room on the second floor at the front. These are large rooms with very big balconiies. The down side is they face the petrol station and the main road. I must say I did not find the road noisy at night once the doors are closed.The beds are really comfortable. Plenty of space for clothes etc. The bathroom is really nice a really deep bath and a shower. Plenty of toiletires, shoer gel, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. replenished daily.Lovely thick large bath sheets. Bathrobes and slippers.
Our friends had a room on the second floor at the dise. The room was very much the same a little smaller and a small balcony facing a part constructed building. These balconies vere better as they were private. The ones on the front have only a small wall seperating them
The breakfast was dissapointing. I had read where you could get a full english breakfast.They have stopped this now and you have to pay extra for this.Plenty of cereal, fruit yoguart and pasrties. The cook food was a bit hit and miss. The food was spoilt by the cold plates and the slightly warm food.
As mentioned on TA no tea / coffee amking facilities in the rooms.
The biggest thing and all the guests did not like the ruel about not bringing your own water in.You need a cloth bag if you are seen with a supermarket bag they take it off you.There is a note saying they will charge you hotel prices for all food and drink brought in.
The other thing was the drinks are expensive except at happyy hour. This means the hotel is almost empty at night with no atmosphere. If the drinks were a little cheaper I think more people would eat and rink in the hotel.
The hotel say you get a turn down service. We only had this about 3 nights.They are suppose to change the towels at that time. Quite a few people were complaining that unless you asked you did not get the service.A five star hotel should have consistance with the service.
The roof top pool is very nice and the beds are the most comfy I have ever had at a pool. Plenty of towels for use in the pool and the spa.
The spa is very good very relaxing very good steam room and relaxing area with beds and all in candlelight.
All in all we enjoyed the stay at the colony.
