The Dipan is VERY new, about 1 month since opening I believe. There are still a couple of teething issues, but that is to be expected.
The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. They definitely make your stay both relaxing and comfortable. Particularly loved the idea of the complimentary 15 min reiki foot massage at the adjoining spa "Pure", upon arrival. It was wonderful!
The spa itself provides excellent treatments (I fell asleep I was so relaxed!). Our 9 yo daughters also had a treatment for their hair, which they loved.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable. (You can still smell the newness of the mattress when you go to bed at night!). They are cleaned and serviced to a high standard daily, by friendly and efficient staff.
The food is excellent. We had the chicken noodle soup for lunch on the day we arrived - amazing...
As has been every other meal we have had.
Our apartment was 3 bedroom and had it's own small private swimming pool, which the kids loved! The main pool, whilst small, was beautifully surrounded be plants and trees, giving it the look and feel of being in a rainforest. The children loved that too, as did we.
The Dipan is a quality hotel, charging premium prices. This isn't the issue, so much as other factors such as the level of construction going on around you. Having lunch yesterday it was impossible to have a conversation over the noise of the angle grinder working 3m away...
The cement trucks, and various other construvtion equipment don't really add to the overall ambiance...
Traffic right outside your window gets very noisy late at night, as do the (I assume) construction workers who work during the cool of the night.... And early morning....
$500+/night seemed a little excessive given these circumstances.
I rated the value and sleep quality based on these seemingly minor, yet significant issues. I would have rated them significantly higher otherwise.
Understanding that the hotel may not be able to influence these issues, and that they would be (hopefully) short term problems, I would definitely look at coming back, hopefully when all the surrounding buildings are finished being built...
