Style over substance
Posted Feb 5, 2017
We chose this hotel because of the excellent reviews we had seen. The hotel is very stylish, and the room we stayed in was lovely. Breakfast was healthy, but there was no variation. The biggest disappointment was at check-in. The driver (who was lovely) showed us to our room, there was no other instruction or welcome. We intended to stay by the pool after a long journey. However,, we were advised no smoking, and would we smoke on the street. Then as we were leaving to explore the area, we were met by the owners mother. As we were very excited abut our trip we mentioned the trips and restaurants we had booked. She dismissed everything saying she would never send guests there. (everything we boked was excellent)We realised why when we saw that they run a travel agency and like to book all trips etc for the guests. We were pretty much left to our own devices and only saw the girls at breakfast or the driver. Joy was very nice when arranging taxis for us, but we had to search her out. For a non smoker, who likes to have everything booked for them on arrival, this place would be fine, as the location s good. However, not for us.
