We hired the two bed villa for a week but were far from impressed. The villa was extremely dark and the lighting was insufficient - this was a little annoying but I guess you could argue it kept the building cool inside.... However, the furniture and fittings (wardrobes etc) were scratched and looked old and worn, there were marks on the carpet and the white sofa wasn't quite white any more. The staff were friendly enough and quite sweet but the majority were not well trained. All in all, we were not left with the impression of the top-notch 5-star hotel we had expected. The location is beautiful and it's evident that this was once an exceptionally beautiful, relaxing retreat but it is missing the care, constant upkeep and refurbishment to ensure the hotel keeps that something special ...
