We spent two nights here at the end of a cruise, sadly the sky was overcast with dense fog so we missed some of the benefit of the hotel's location. It is situated high on a hill overlooking the river, with a river view room, and the floors are terraced around an outdoor pool and garden. The garden was lovely.
The rooms were spacious, very spacious. The bedroom had space to roam even with a king size bed. The décor was classic and subdued. In addition to adequate drawer space in the armoire there was at least 8 linear feet of lighted closet space with a good supply of high quality hangers and a myriad of shelves and cubbyholes. The mattress was not firm - hard is the only descriptor that fits the sheet and blankets were fine.
The bathroom was also spacious with a tub, dual sinks -although counter space was - limited, toilet, bidet and an "L" shaped shower stall. The shower was poorly designed, with conflicts between the shower door and the door to the bathroom and water on the floor was a problem with every shower. Toiletries were adequate in quantity, refreshed appropriately and of reasonable quality. Towels were large enough and plush enough to meet 5 star requirements, Both robes and slippers were provided.
Service at the front desk, the concierge, bell staff and housekeeping were appropriate although turndown service was a bit early for our room - around 6 pm.
If the bed was more comfortable, the bathroom more functional and turndown service during dinner instead of before the Lapa Palace would rate "excellent"
