4/10 Fair

Excellent location, excellent service. The only problem is the statue of the beach access! After driving 6 hours to spend 4 days on the Mediterranean, we were told that the beach is closed! April 30th through May 4th (26 degrees weather) When I insisted they made me sign a waiver, wich was fine, but when I went to access the water on one of the docs in front of the hotel, a guard came running towards me saying that I was in front of the residence of the director and he didn't like people accessing the water in front of him! Even thought it was a large board walk from the hotel going west wide oppen with no signs that the hotel property ended and the director's Ocean view started! Next day I took my board right in front of the hotel, Same problem another guard came runing and asked me not to go any where until he got clearance from his hierarchy! This place feels like a ware zone guards every where watching your every move, something is off! If the director wants to have a private beach or private garden he should just take over the place and not let us wast our money to drive across the world and pay premium resort prices just not to have access to the beach. Security agents should not have any business talking to customers that are paying $200 a night in a resort! They have no training in dealing with tourists, hotel staff that went to school for tourism should be dealing with hotel guests. It's to bad!
