We stayed here on our honeymoon and it did not disappoint. We considered a resort, but wanted to be able to visit the shops and Restaurants easily. The hotel is gorgeous. Every single detail was amazing, from the pool, to the courtyards, to the sitting areas, to the art in the wall. I can see why it’s a UNESCO World Heritage site. One of the most beautiful hotels I’ve ever stayed in. The room itself was amazing. We stayed in an ocean view King room which was amazing. Soaker tub, stand up shower, comfortable bed, and all of the lights worked off of master panels, with one next to the bed. It was one of the nicer rooms I’ve stayed in anywhere. The food was great. Continental European breakfast, with baked good, an omelet station, fresh fruit, and cereal options. The meals were also great. Amazing butter chicken. We did not care for the burger, which was more of a meatball/meatloaf than what you think of a burger. Wouldn’t recommend that one. All of the staff was AMAZING. They would stop by the room multiple times a day asking if we needed anything. The front desk staff were also great and helped with just about anything we needed. The hotel amenities were also great. The pool was great (but somewhat small), the spa was great(we got massages), and they always made sure to have the World Cup on for guests. Only two real drawbacks. The beach in front of the hotel is very very busy with people, and can get a little loud. We could here either the restaurant music or people on the beach from our room with the doors closed (not bad at all but noticeable). It does make the pool a bit off putting because everyone on the beach stares at you. And the hot water was a little spotty. All in all I would recommend this hotel to anyone and we’ll be back!

We stayed 2 nights in this wonderful hotel and I could gladly have stayed another week. The staff are helpful and friendly and no task is too much. We had a leaking shower and my husband mentioned this at breakfast to the manager and before we had finished our breakfast it was fixed. The hotel is centrally located so going for dinner is easy and the rooms are clean and well air conditioned! The staff are knowledgeable and eager to help without being overwhelming. I would definitely recommend this hotel and I am sure I will be back!
