We stayed at this resort for 3 nights recently, and while being highly impressed by the beachside apartment we had, I can not give it 5 stars purely due to several problems. I will start with the positives- everything was very clean and tidy, the view from the windows was fantastic, and there was a lot of room. It was very quiet and comfortable, and the barbecue put on by the hotel on the last day was good and tasty.
However, as the title suggests, you expect nigh-on perfection to come with a high price, but our beach house had a couple of problems. Firstly and most bizarrely was a problem with the locks on doors- the lock to one bedroom did not actually lock the door, and another lock decided to refuse to unlock itself on the last day, temporarily locking me in the toilet. How hard is it to put a lock on a door that works? Another problem was the terrible wifi- there were multiple connections, none of which were at all reliable, and this is really hard to understand in such an upmarket resort. We also found the pillows to be too soft, meaning your head completely flattened them with ease.
Otherwise the place was very good but I have explained why I cannot give it 5 stars and claim it is perfect.
