Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of a 2 week holiday. It was our most expensive hotel even more than the Mandarin Oriental in Vegas!
The room was comfortable, clean and stylish, with a good shower.
The lighting in the room is a nonsense as you cannot turn on the bedside lights from the bed.
I would echo the general lack of efficient service which was rather indifferent.
Without a bar or restaurant or any thing in the way of a decent lounge, this is no more than a motel where all you get is a room for the night.
We had a garden view room and do not get one of these if you stay here but pay for a shore view.
