Its not the Phoenica, Big and modern, Excellent
We have stayed at several 5 star hotels and this is very close to the mark. Reception could use another couple of staff and the drinks waiters around the pool need to stop talking to each other and pay attention to the customers. Room service was good, however doing a room at 3:30 -4pm was a tad late. The bathroom floor had a couple of loose tiles and the grout was missing on quarter of the floor. Also there was a very dirty stain on the tiles on the side of the bath. I would prefer to see a walk in shower rather than clambering over the side of a high sided bath. Breakfast I preferred on the 5th floor however Both restaurants were of a high standard. The 88 steps and walk up the hill was a challenge and not for the faint hearted. Taxis were available and we used one once and it was great! Swimming pool and beach were great.
