We did not stay at this hotel but at one a few doors down. However, our friends traveling with three children and a nanny stayed here at the same time, and so we had extensive experience as visitors of people staying here. Wow! First of all, it is a gorgeous hotel. The public rooms are very beautiful, and our friends' rooms were exactly what you would expect at this level--very luxurious with beautiful views. Second, the staff at the front desk were exceptional. The people with whom we interacted spoke perfect English which was very lucky for us. They were friendly and warm in a professional but sincere way and were exceptionally helpful as far as recommending restaurants, shopping for specific items, booking cars and reservations. We ate at the hotel's more informal terrace restaurant which was delightful (although throughout the meal we were able to clearly hear the wedding singer from a wedding at a nearby hotel!) No one seemed to bat an eye at special requests for children (although the children were exceptionally polite, so maybe that helped as well). The location is perfect: a five minute walk to the city square and a minute to the shuttle to the beach or to hired cars for other trips. We saw one of the concierges at a restaurant in town with her family and she was friendly and warm outside her work setting as well. I know our friends were also well satisfied. Staying here seems like money well spent.
