Overall a very good hotel only let down from excellent due to the availability of a reasonable internet speed/supply. Reasonable internet availability is an essential in this day and age especially in a 5 star hotel

they do have an attitude problem towards the locals. pathetic service ( by a few though) extremely dissatisfied to be honest. since we paid a hefty amount for this, we did not get the service we expected. staff training towards the locals should be conducted separately.
