I've seen previous reviews saying it's noisy at night, but that must depend on your room because where we were (139), it was perfectly quiet. The staff are all amazing, I say all, we had one difficult guy in the bar but out of forty or so encounters that was the only one. The Japanese restaurant was brilliant, one of...

Good selection of food available, although it would be helpful if vegetarian meals could be clearly indicated on labels. The staff in the dining room are exceptionally helpful. I concur with the previous comments about the noise from the...
