Quite good, but not what I think is five stars

First of all, its a good hotel and you cant do anything wrong by choosing it.
The greeting was warm and welcoming, including a glass of champagne and cold refreshing towels. The golf-cart transfer to our room (deep blue junior suite) was seamless, the nice guy explained shortly the function of the AC and the room. The room size itself is big, including a sofa, but not a seperated living area. The bathtub is IN the room, FYI.
Anyway, the view from our room was amazing, although just a very few rooms have this kind of "beach front" view.
The breakfast has a general variety, but nevertheless there seems to be very little in variation (stayed there for a week). Freshly squeezed orange juice is availably direct from the squeeze-machine. Nice.
So what are the negatives? Call me spoiled, the hotel is generally in a good condition, but at some places (pools, restaurant etc.) you feel the age. They have no electric curtains. There was no picture or painting inour room. The parking lot looks like third-world-garbage place.
The Hotel beachis quite small and crowded. The snack quailty at the pool bar poor.
Bottom line: more a good 4,5 Star Hotel. Good for Southern European Standards, you most likely will not be dissapointed, but generally not a true 5 star experience.
