This hotel is popular, well-known and previously highly-rated. However, during my stay they failed to impress me. (My bad, too, for picking a week they were at 95%) There was construction noise and late night (12:30 am) outdoor music but that wasn't the worst. At check-out, I learned that I was over-charged-- the manager gave me a credit but not...

This property went above and beyond any expectation I could have had! This was the best birthday stay by far. From champagne and a cake surprise in my room. To every staff member greeting me by name and wishing me a happy birthday! They made me feel like their most important guest! Everyone from Brian the car service driver to...

Luxury at its best. Room was very clean, nicely decorated. Everything you need and more. Outdoor seating area looked stunning especially at night time. Dining was excellent, hard to explain with words. You need to experience it. Nothing comes cheap at this Hotel but its amazing. Now I know why its in the book......leading Hotels of the world.....

We recently stayed at The Setai in the towers. So while we did use the main hotel for dining and business services, I cannot really comment about the rooms in the hotel. But what I can say is, that no matter where we went on grounds or what services we accessed, the staff were the friendliest, most helpful, and best...

The property was immaculate, the room was well appointed and sexy. Bathtub at the foot of the bed sexy. Pool area was paradise with different temperature pools and food/beverage was also amazing. Anywhere you go to lay by a pool and the staff offers you sunscreen, water spritzers for your face, frozen grapes and remembers you by name gets a...

Hotel was beautiful and very clean. We had a very special welcome when we arrived for my wife's birthday (champagne waiting in the room). Managers were very attentive and service was great. Breakfast was also exceptional - really enjoyed the breakfast omelets and the fresh avocado station. The hotel bar is cool and specialty cocktails are great. I enjoyed the...

We took a one night stay-cation sans kids, to unwind and relax. The property is clean and beautiful, and the people working in the lobby were lovely. The room was clean, spacious and beautifully furnished. The pool area was nice, but there was no hot tub (rather, three pools 75,85 and 95 degrees). Other than spa treatments, the spa only...

While few hotels live up to the "5-star" label, the Setai excels. The service and attention to detail are phenomenal. The pools are wonderful, giving you a private secluded feel. The tower 2-bedroom suite is beautiful, exceptionally appointed and very clean. Unlike other similar experiences, we were not "nickeled and dimed". Our parking was included. Soft drinks and bottled water...

Food is not that special, the club sandwich is terrible for example. On Saturday they do not serve brunch. Service is a bit annoying, the guy used to come every minute interrupting all the time. It seems kind but after a while that's annoying.
