This is an extensive hotel complex with multiple facilities. This is great, as although there are some tours and activities to do outside of the hotel, they are somewhat limited.
The hotel spa, gym and e-club are well staffed and the service is great. Spagettini provides good pizzas but could do more in terms of basic pastas. The three screen cinema on site is also a great addition - but do take a jumper or pashmina as its cold inside!
Overall the hotel and its staff really try hard to be five star, but somehow just miss the mark. Its not from a lack of trying.
