Each day the jobs in our room were completed. Shower mended. Drain sorted.
Even the stain I pointed out on the door post was repainted where water had clearly seeped before.
However the smell……. did we really want to move rooms again!!!! The staff very kindly did show us another room. Even larger and more grand than the smelly room but no view what’s so ever and the thought of packing up again and then unpacking….OH said NO..so that was that..too much stress for the remaining 4 nights…such a shame and a dampener on our first holiday for a very long time.
The coffee machines didn’t work properly and we just about gave up with that.
The socket nearest the fridge didn’t work and we still had to plug in the diffuser to camouflage the smell….. DON’T STAY IN 2306…
We suggested that they wait until we were gone and have a look at the electrics in this room. Clearly something amiss. Quite often the lights would flicker when you touched a switch or just wouldn’t turn off at all.
We had been offered a free stay on our return, but so far no email of confirmation as promised..lip service??? I hope not. Due to my OH’s impending departure from his job alas this will probably never happen.
Just again seems a little sad that they would knowingly put us in a room with problems in a 5 star hotel. Or maybe some people just don’t complain but then again, never go back.
On walking back to the hotel, after our early morning walk on the beach. We climbed the stairs from the beach. What was this??? breakfast was being served in Azure………….wow, I was so excited. Now this was a better setting altogether.
We rushed back to the room to change for breakfast. Well, I don’t think sarong with bikini appropriate…
Beautiful. It’s a great place to have breakfast. Don’t know why they don’t do it there all the time.
This was a trial run by the owner of the hotel. What a great idea. So much nicer than the open restaurants near the hotel main building.
OH did find it a bit hot. Not much of a breeze on the Saturday morning, but I was happy. Although it was a limited buffet he still managed to squeeze in a muffin and yogurt followed by a Danish pastry….. tinker. That was after a delicious omelet!!
We would go back to the Intercontinental as it truly was a great place to relax and even the children that were guests at the hotel clearly behaved beautifully most of the time. No noisy revelers. A peaceful and tranquil setting.
I would really recommend this hotel, just make sure you ask to view the room first to make sure you don’t get a smelly room…
I have to say once again, how fantastic the staff are here at this hotel. It is what really makes this hotel almost perfect.
