Came back yesterday after 6 nights including 2013 NYE with family friends. The room was excellent, one of the best we've had in hotels of that level. We've got a room on 26th floor which came usefull, since it was away from the noise of construction site nearby. Ask for the room with window which can be slightly open. The staff was freindly and with constant smile. Our special thanks goes to concierge team Erwin (thanks for a tip about Japanese restorant for NYE) and Dil for tennis tickets! The breakfast was excellent with variety of European and Asian meals. The wi-fi was free and worked well, with minor problems. We've ordered a room service dinner, it was excellent all over, from the service to the meal!
The main problem of the hotel is his location. It's 10 min far from the sea, but not from the beach, since you have to walk at least for an hour to get there or to get a taxi. They have a nice pool, but located on the 8th floor, surrounded by 3 high buildings, so you are always in the shadow...
Overall, it's excellent hotel for business stay, since for the holidays you have to use taxi all the time, since you don't have anything to do nearby.
