Above and beyond
Amazing from the first moment. Super friendly and attentive staff, I splurged on the sea view room and it was just gorgeous, the breakfast was all-encompassing and room service punctual. Most comfortable bed and bedding I’ve experienced in years. Shower pressure could be stronger. The mall in the building made shopping super convenient. Exceeded my expectations in almost every area.
