We stayed at this hotel not out of choice but because we were invited to a meeting. Our corner suite had breathtaking views across the ocean and the multitude of islands and mountains. However, the decor was a mismatch of wallpapers, curtains, furniture and carpets, which was rather depressing. But worse was what we experienced on the 2nd day. When we came back to our room in the afternoon, there was an incredible strong smell of solvent throughout the suite. It was so unbearable that we had to call the hotel reception for help. We were later advised that they were carrying out some light refurbishment on the floor above, and that the hotel management would like to come and inspect the smell. Upon agreeing with us about the strong chemical fumes, they came back with 2 air cleaners, but did not offer to move us to another room. A few hours later, around 10 PM, our eyes were stinging and we started to experience a light headache, we then called for help again; we also told the hotel staff that we were very unhappy. They turned up with another 3rd air cleaner, so we told them that this was just unacceptable and we would not be able to sleep, and if we did, we would find it hard to wake up again. Eventually, they moved us to a junior suite with clean air and, to our surprise, was much better decorated that the 'suite from hell'. We will not go back to this hotel again and would not recommend it to anyone.
