With the exception of the early morning crowing of the roosters, this place is mostly quiet and relaxing.
Unfortunately I was asked to wait far too long for a sub-standard suite, where the curtains were bedraggled and the view of the baking hot carpark facing the blazing afternoon sun were a huge disappointment on my Special Birthday. This Villa was not to my liking at all.
I requested another Villa away from the carpark as I wished to use my verandah considering I was here for a week. Staff finally agreed to my request to put me on the cooler, view side of Block 5.
Ask for EVEN number rooms if you are staying in Block 5, otherwise you get the carpark vista.
Airconditioning was very noisy, like my last visit, but I used the fan this time. Dishwasher did not leak.
Coffee maker worked fine and the maid service daily was very useful and well executed. Don't bother with the Green Option for the sake of $10.00.
Grounds are immaculate. Pools sparking. No problem with others claiming lounges early with their towels. Car parking was no problem.
Porters and driveway attendants were very efficient.
Be wary of doubling up on room charges. We had pre-paid for our (2) villas but were charged again on checkout, so we left the place unsure the Westin had reversed the second (very substantial) set of charges. Quite unsettling.
St Regis for me next year.
