4 point review:
- we hosted a big corporate event at the Fairmont. They have a very large modular ballroom and a number of smaller meeting rooms of various sizes. The banquet services are exemplary.
- The rooms are well laid out and modern furnished. The hotel itself is by the creek and a creek facing room boasts amazing views
- There are a number of restaurants including italian, lebanese and a steakhouse
- There is a large pool, well equipped gym and spa.

Room Tip: creek facing room for amazing views

We stayed for a fortnight at this hotel as we were conducting a training and we just had such a great time, wonderful food and excellent service from the hotel staff, all of them very friendly and ready to provide the best for us.... really great days spent there. Hotel even provided a delicious chocolate cake for my birthday, delivered to m room, what a big and nice surprise! was really difficult to leave after the time spent there!

This hotel surpasses expectations on many levels. Service, quality, high standards all around. We also got upgraded to a Superior Suite.... and it was impressive. The type of suite you can throw celebrity parties in. Private separate elevators, walk in closet, 3 bathrooms, ceiling speakers for music and TV. Wall to wall windows with spectacular views. Location was a bit off from our A-D requirements, but the taxis in A-D are incredibly cheap, so that was not a major issue. Overall, a very excellent choice for any traveler. One of my top 5 hotels of all time. As is usual in A-D and especially in this type of hotel.... expensive dinning choices only, and really not much else around for choice.

I'm not a great reviewer but this hotel compelled me to write. Fantastic location overlooking the beach. Great service and facilities with extremely helpful staff. My room overlooked the beach and pool and has to be up there with the great hotel room views. It's not cheap but exclusivity and perfection costs....

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the pool.
