                      • The location was the best everything was near by, the proximity of the hotel to all the life of the Waterfront was also a great plus and the staff were friendly and helpful. The bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. Spa treatments were amazing.

                        The fish was oily and smelly and the service was awful.

                      • The view was great too and island Suite was gorgeous. The staff and the hotel were amazing and could not do enough for you, lobby bar were excellent. Pool service was good too, chris the concierge was very helpful and we insisted on the booked room after waiting for some time was eventually made available. The food was wonderful, the dinner at Nobu was the best meal of my life and the spa was adequate.

                        Poor value for money, i am afraid celebrity named restaurants just do not work remotely.
