My partner and I stayed here for one night. It was definitely beautiful but not as great as we expected it to be. The rooms were beautiful and spacious but unnecessary. We stayed in the lobby room which was already large with a wardrobe etc, so I can only imagine what the deluxe rooms must be like. Although beautiful a definite waste of space.
When we booked our accommodation, we understood that a DVD player would be available. This wasn't the case when we go there and many of the channels on the tv did not work due to lack of payment from the hotel. At least this is what we were told.
I also felt the bathroom hadn't been cleaned well when we arrived. There was water all over the floor as if someone had just used it and it smelt really odd.
The food was fantastic but again VERY EXPENSIVE compared to other hotels around the area.
Overall, the stay was ok. I would say check it out if you are with a group of friends but I probably wouldn't stay there again... maybe if I was with a group
