8/10 Very good

The hotel is beautiful and set in beautiful surroundings. There is plenty to occupy yourselves with for 2-3 days with the lovely pools and spa. It was a shame that it rained most of the time we were there so we couldnt plan many activities but it also meant we could fully relax and use the facilities at offer. The staff were all v nice and the dinner at the restaurant raiva was v delicious. However i would say the service needs to be a little better/quicker/more attentive to warrant the prices you are paying for stay and food etc. There didnt seem to be a leading team member at any time during the stay e.g when there was an issue with our room or the dinner service.

6/10 Good

4 starts but could be 5 with better service
Interesting place. The location is excellent but the service is haphazard - lots of quite young staff running around without direction or management, so they really want to please, but don’t know how to and often getting it wrong. It’s overpriced for the service provided. I would consider the hotel to be a 4 star property not 5 as stated. Silly things like curtains were off the rails for 5 days!? in a ‘suite’?? No service at sun loungers / adult pool? The gastronomical restaurant was as expensive as London or New York without the service to match. We didn’t see 1 manager over the 5 days!?! Wines are more expensive than London and many are produced around the corner!?! We felt sorry for the staff who could only apologise, but not a cent taken off our rather expensive bill. Also note - there’s very little around the hotel área as far as other restaurants are concerned.

10/10 Exceptional

hotel was beautiful and service was great, however there was not enough staff in the restaurants to offer the same standard as the property and as it is in a remote location without easy access to other restaurants, this is impactful. The hotel staff did their best - this problem is just be a universal issue across all travel sectors, unfortunately.
