Positive Reviews

Luxury accommodations

Guests love the luxurious rooms and suites, stocked with amenities. No matter which type of accommodation you choose, you'll enjoy views of the city or water from your spacious private balcony. Beds are comfortable, and housekeeping services keep rooms sparkling clean.

VIP treatment

Prepare to be impressed by the top-notch service you receive at this resort. Staff members take the time to give you their full attention, no matter how busy the hotel gets. From booking reservations to accommodating special requests, the staff is knowledgeable and very welcoming.

Good location

Guests love that this hotel is close to a variety of restaurants and provides easy access to sightseeing tours. The concierge is excellent in providing recommendations for activities and dining in the local area.

Negative Reviews

Pool can be chilly

Guests say the rooftop pool would be a much better amenity if it were heated year round. If you're booking a trip during the cooler months, you might find that the pool is simply too cold to use.

It's not cheap

This luxury property comes with a luxury price tag. With all the 5-star amenities and services, it can be easy to spend a small fortune. Restaurants are generally pricey as well. If you book a stay here, be prepared to splurge a little.

Beware of crowds and lines

While this resort is huge, it can also get crowded. When the hotel does experience peak capacity, you might notice lines at the restaurants or less efficient staff. Services like check-in and check-out can also experience heavy wait times.
