We stayed at this hotel for two nights at the start of a trip. The hotel is beautiful - very elegant as you might expect from a five star resort. The food is very good although quite expensive and the breakfast amazing. They try to cater for everyone regardless of nationality and do it well.
The rooms are large and comfortable although the air conditioning unit was a little over zealous and would switch to 5 degrees Celsius automatically upon leaving the room and re-entering the room was little like walking into a fridge.
The location of the hotel is not so great - quite a substantial taxi ride to most places of interest.
Also the spa is very expensive and far beyond what you normally expect to pay.
As I needed to work a little whilst there, I needed to access wifi. There is wifi in the room also the charges are quite high. Alternatively there is free wifi in the lobby. The downside to this is that there are very few places to sit where a decent signal can be found.
A final gripe was that the lounge at the lobby level seems to be reserved for a select few - which leaves you feeling slightly as a second class citizen when attempting to work in the lobby.
