I booked a one bedroom suite but changed to a sea view room on check in. I loved being on the 7th floor with views over the ocean and would recommend to others.
What I don't understand is why the rooms are so empty? Given that the rooms are very large where is the nice comfortable lounge? It looked like the room was partly furnished.
The first day the room was very basically cleaned, days 2-4 were cleaned by someone else and beautifully done...I would employ them.
Dinner ...don't ask it was really terrible for the price paid. I would not recommend eating at the hotel...sorry I would love to say differently but it was horrible. Staff were fantastic and made the experience worthwhile.
The bus...great but make sure you know where the drop off and pick up point is so you don't miss it.
Overall....great except for the food.
