We've done this one before, and were sufficiently happy with it to have another week. Friendly service and well worth the upgrade we decided to go for this time in the club rooms on the top floor. Access to the snacks and comfy open bar made a relaxing stay. The room we had this time was better, with plenty of space and an amazing view over the beach and mountains. We've been to this part of the world so often if feels like home!
Only one snag - the slow service in Duke's bar. A wonderful view but we waited ages for our meals to arrive. Seems like they are overstretched a bit with staff, as this bar/restaurant gets busy. Just one puzzling aspect of having to wait ages for food (not just at this hotel either) when it does finally arrive, why is what is supposed to be hot food always cold? Has it been sitting somewhere for ages before being delivered to the table?
