8/10 Very good

Has amazing WOW factor, but not so comfortable bed
For the price charged this hotel is amazing (when compared with international prices), with incredible amenities and style. Sadly the comfort levels are not so impressive and the bed was not the best quality and hard mattress, so sleep not so good. Park Hyatt hotel has much better beds and bedding even if it does not have such wow factor. I requested a quiet room and got it, thankfully. I was in a pool-side room which was very good. I stayed previously in a more expensive sea view room, but these rooms have the bed backing onto the wall adjoining the corridor outside so can be noisy. The bed for the pool view room is a good way inside the room, away from the corridor, so very quiet, and also a nice view. I was looking forward to the deep-soak bath, after my travels, but only on the third attempt (mid-morning time) was the water hot enough to have a comfortable soak. The spa is great as is the breakfast buffet. The pool area is nice but the full pool length, while long, is very very shallow the whole way. Very attentive staff. Given a choice I'd probably pick the Park Hyatt next time for room and bed comfort and instant hot water, but for photos and wow factor hard to beat the Leela Palace.
