I liked this place having stayed for 3 days in early September. The staff are good, the food for breakfast is good. The pool area they've made lots of effort with given it is not on the coast. Not much wrong then?
For the price of this place and its 5 star billing I expected more. At first it is hard to put your finger on it. I've been to a number of 5 star places around the world and you don't get that exclusive feel (sorry!). I don't expect the Imperial in Delhi or the Cape Grace in Cape Town- if only I could stay there all the time - but if you look at the curtains in the rooms they aren't great. The room (I stayed in a standard room) was small and nicely finished but the tv wasnt great either. The balcony is small where I got to watch a 5 a side football game 50 feet away (I wasn't that enamoured by that) and when you want to get back in the room there isn't handle on the outside to make it easy.
So I hope you can see what I mean about it. It's nice. Great weather at this time of year. All around 'nice' but make your own mind up if this is enough for the price and billing.....
Hope this helps....
