Won a trip here through work with the wife and I have to say this is without a doubt the loveliest hotel we have stayed in . The staff , food BEDs were amazing . Superb location . We had such a lovely time .
Had we being paying for it ourselves I'm sure we would not have enjoyed it so much as it was hellishly expensive . Breakfast in bed $95 for two . Couple that with the current exchange rate and that is gonna make most people wince . Having said that it is very exclusive and that appears to be the way they want it and it .

It's been two hours and still waiting for someone to check our air conditioning. This comes after sitting for 30 minutes in the lounge to be served a drink and after their bike vendor charged us too much for bike rentals.

Nice place, good food but I'm beginning to believe it may be time to find new leaders of the pack for customer service.

Shocking shocking quality of food and service. It was almost as we were in a reality show where all the staff had zero experience in the industry. The food was bland, we had to send our main back to be cooked again. Do not recommend at all.

We had a great stay at Shutters (family of 5). Probably the best staff that we've experienced across the board - from the valet parking (expensive but worth the cost if you're going to use your car regularly during your stay), through to maids, room service, pool etc. Sea view rooms are great especially if you're on an upper floor - ground floor rooms might have a restricted view over the pool area. The hotel gives a free drinks voucher for each guest upon arrival - a small touch in the grand scheme of things but welcome nevertheless and not something that other similar properties seem to offer. Lovely beds and room fittings. We enjoyed our stay.

the hotel will set you back starting from $1000 a night with taxes and there is great care and attention to detail BUT they do not give you a break and spank you very hard for everything

they seem to have taken a lead from the worst practises one finds in the south of france

my suggestion is stay at shutters but shake yourself from complacency and eat outside where you can get great food and service at sensible prices

I object to paying $120 for an unexceptional omlette breakfast for 2

they are not satisfied with $50 daily to park your car , nor $25 for wi fi ........you are crammed on the terrace and yet they charge extra for a beach set up

I have loved shutters but they are taking their location for granted and starting to charge way way too much

cough and they will look after you but boy do they charge you
