Location, facilities
We had a great time, service for a 5-star hotel was very poor, thought charging full price for dinner buffet for a child was a bit steep seeing that they eat so little, other than that fantastic

Birthday celebration stay a bit disappointing

Location, Ocean views, Decor and Design
I booked a stay at the resort to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. Was looking forward to a relaxing Easter weekend with our one year old baby. I had called the resort a week before arriving to confirm that we would require a baby cot in our room. I also confirmed again on the morning before checking in that a cot would be ready for our baby in our room on arrival. When we checked into our room at 4pm it had not been cleaned, the bathroom basin was blocked, there was no cot provided and we had to ask three times for it to be brought to our room. No cot arrived and our baby had to share our bed on the first night. The next morning, we complained at reception and were only then told that no cots were available and the hotel would be purchasing more that day. Highly annoyed that this was not communicated when we had requested the previous day. Staff in general do not appear to be well trained or informed about the resort. We enquired on two occasions about a heated pool on the premises, and hotel staff claimed that none of the pools were heated. Only found out on our last day that there was a heated pool at the Valley of Pools. The waitress at the Bite pool cafe did not know what scrambled eggs were?? Very disappointed that such a beautiful resort in a fantastic location is being let down but such poor service. Staff were generally friendly but not well trained at all. No map was provided of the estate and family dining options were limited, due to a large party having booked the normal buffet restaurant out for the entire weekend. Our long weekend break was generally pleasant but would only consider staying there again once the staff have had a serious service training upgrade.
