Worst EVER Buffett, average Hotel not worth 5 stars. Had an inclusive package that was ok for the Spa, when I invited a guest for the buffett which had great reviews online,, it was very average food offering, however, the oysters were very good quality and fresh, this was pre-booked & paid for...but they damnded I pay again, and then wanted me to waste my time waiting for a manager, AGAIN this was pre-booked and they were told already it was paid for when I booked the table. I was humiliated in front of my guest and was so upset it gave me terrible pains in my chest. The food and beverage manager came to see me at breakfast and INVITED me to the cocktail bar that evening, at first I declined, but later took him up on the offer, WELL I HAD TO PAY for very average cocktails with terrible music in the background all in all dreadful service and food and drinks at a 5 star rated hotel. again with a GUEST. Overall typical accor offering terrible service when you pay for the best and then makes you pay after inviting you for cocktails after they screwed up the evening before, WILL not go back and will ban all accor properties or our business we only employ 167 people.

Quite fantastic 5 star hotel ! Really satisfied with the staff and also the property design, they have 4 kind of themes for the hotel rooms, fire water wood and earth, so it divide the floors from low to top floor, each theme is around 4 to 5 floor, I was placed on earth theme and really love it, got upgraded to suite because of my Accor membership, really love it, very big room and everything worked well. Also I enjoyed the club lounge services and food, and also the restaurant, have a lot variety food and everything was delicious. Definitely will come back.
