Stayed here on September 3rd. The woman working the front desk the night of the 3rd and morning of the 4th was simply outstanding. Any Ritz Carlton would hire her immediately.
Yes, the setting is nice and the rooms are fine. The restaurant and bar staff are dreadful. The heat was on in the restaurant when it was 18C outside, making it feel like 30C inside. Our request to turn the heat off was ignored, so we did it ourselves. The food was average, except for the dead fly, really, in my entree. Salmon served skin side up with sauce on the skin. Had never seen that presentation.
In the restaurant, I felt as if we were In a Monty Python episode where the jokes were on us. Our caddies at Troon told us not to eat there. We were tired and didn't listen to them but we should have.
