6/10 Good

5 star service from staff at hotel. Everyone working there was kind, gracious, professional and helpful. 4 star amenities as expected from a 4 star hotel. Roof top terrace and bar is a nice touch 2 star air conditioning that is unable to go below 25C even when the system is set at 19C (Frio). Soundproofing is mediocre with modest level conversations being heard from the corridor with the room door closed. And so called “black out” curtains that are not wide enough to prevent substantial light from entering the room

Excellent hotel that perfectly met our requirements for the trip. All of the staff we encountered went out of their way to help. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. The food served in the restaurant was all lovely too.
