We stayed in an Executive Suite which is quite the luxurious experience. The suite has a separate living area and desk area plus bar, closed off by large double doors from the bedroom. Then there is also a walk-in robe and a magnificent, large bathroom complete with separate toilet, shower and bathtub. There are 3 TVs, one in the living room, one in the bedroom and one that you can watch while taking a bath. The marble bathroom is a delight and is equipped with many treats including a loofah, lovely toiletries and massive, thick, luxurious towels.
The bed is very comfortable and beautifully appointed with fresh, crisp linen. The curtains and blinds are all operated electrically and (at least in the bedroom) can be operated by remote control.
The entire hotel is beautiful to look at and walk through. There is a definite feel of luxury, that no detail has been left unimagined. For us, it was Christmas and the motif was beautiful big red baubles which decorated many areas of the hotel. Carols played in the main lobby area and Santa even made an appearance.
Room service was wonderful and although not cheap, it does come with all the expected extra touches such as a gorgeous orchid on our breakfast trolley.
I stayed here several years ago in a similar room and I half expected that the furnishings would be worse for wear or that a refurb would be in order. To be honest, I was pleasantly surprised and it felt like a new property.
The swimming pool is not as magnificent as it is in the photos but it's not at all likely to disappoint. It's extremely clean, a beautiful 30 degrees and very well maintained. I found the staff in the pool area to be less than welcoming though.
Our Concierge was helpful and warm, and the doorman we encountered was the friendliest, most welcoming staff member there.
We didn't visit the casino area or the upmarket restaurants during our stay but we did enjoy one breakfast at Cafe Baci which is reasonably priced and the food is well presented and of great quality.
