Lots of potential but poor execution Mar 14, 2016
We stayed here last minute, and the first sign that this hotel was not all it is billed up to be was in our welcome. We arrived at the hotel without a reservation. I had seen that there was plenty of availability online and figured that we could save time (and commission fees for the hotel…possibly getting a better room) by booking direct upon arrival.

Unfortunately, the gate guard wouldn’t let our taxi in, even when I explained to him what we were trying to do. He said that if we didn’t have a reservation we had to pay money even to set foot on the premises of the hotel. Apparently this is a policy of the hotel, even though the only reason we wanted to enter the grounds was so that we could pay them money for a reservation! Admittedly, they probably don’t get many last minute, walk-in guests – but this is hardly service worthy of a 5-star resort.

The complications continued even after finally gaining entrance to the lobby. The staff working at the front desk kept insisting that there were no rooms available. It was only after I showed them the plethora of rooms available online, from dozens of websites, for that very same night, that they started becoming more accommodating. Again, terrible service.

I wish that I could say that things got better once we got to our room, but unfortunately that was not the case. The style of the rooms had a certain gaudiness and, for lack of a better word, oddness that seems very at odds with the definition of luxury.

For example, there were curtains (with a giant rod that you had to pull) used to separate the toilet from the rest of the bathroom, and the toilet seat was about twice the normal size of any toilet seat I have ever seen. There was a gaudy looking mirror on the ceiling above the bed, but no reading lights or functional space next to the beds to put your stuff. Maybe there are some to whom the style will appeal, but to me it was as if the designer tried too hard to be whimsical, and didn’t think carefully enough about how hotel rooms are actually used.

The décor of the hotel itself followed a similar theme. It felt more like we were at Disneyland, with all the cartoonish associations, than at a luxury resort. This might be fine if you are traveling with small kids, but it didn’t feel relaxing, or classy.

The hotel does get one extra star for the incredible location and views. It is set within a beautiful, secluded bay with a private beach, and feels incredibly private. Unfortunately, the hotel’s unique location is not enough to make up for the poor service and tacky design – and even if it did, you shouldn’t have to make that tradeoff for the prices that the hotel charges.

Very strange looking place. Makes you wonder what some people are thinking sometimes, eh? Even cross culture difference doesn't explain the weird factor here.
