Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Gorgeous place, gorgeous hotel. Management should be on top of few things though. There were some deficiencies in the service that reflects poor oversight: 1. Room was not very clear. Hair on floor and in sink. 2. After the room was serviced; toiletry (shampoo, etc.. ) were not refilled and placed back in an orderly way; they kept them the way we left them. 3. Only one capsule of caffeinated coffee for a room of 2 and one decaf. 4. Toiletry (cream, shampoo etc..) were not of expected quality; the ones used in their gym/spa are much better than the ones in the room. 5. They say they have a soap menu; but we had to order the soap. But otherwise an amazing place; surreal. Should be on every tourist's short list of things to do.
