Isnt necessarily gold ?
Its time for a reality check with this hotel.
We stayed for a week on a half board basis in a beautiful deluxe room facing the palm. The room, food and design of the hotel are all justifyabily 1st class, and worthy of a premier 5 start hotel.
However, it is marketed as having numerous bars and restaurants, yet there is only one public bar available (off the main central lobby area) all the others are part of the various restaurants.Furthermore a hotel proporting to be be a class leading 5 star world class facility would surely have some form of family entertainment available for its guests ? many people do not wish to either have to stay in expensive restaurants or even drink.
Families have no option but to wander the corridors on the ground level and gaze at the famous fish tank (fabulous though it is, its charms wear off after the 3 night of nothing else to do)
One is left with no option but to catch a taxi into town, for some form of evening entertainment.
A little effort in utelising the numerous conference rooms to provide some form of family entertainment would surely elevate the status of the hotel.
This hotel could be great.... if it didnt rest on its laurels and reputation so much.
