A Luxury Oasis in the hectic Chawaeng Beach

Scottsdale, Arizona

The location is perfect, right on a beuatiful beach and within walking distance to all the restuarants, high end shops, and nightlife. The minute we arrived we were greeted by riendly staff who all of them are prompt and attentive. The overall decor is modern, white clean builidng in contrast to the dark red pool in the middle. The room design is very temporary without feeling cold but very cozy. The electronic control for lighting and shades are very up to date. You can change the color of the lighting to match your mood. The service is excellent. When we called for room service, they arrived in less than 5 minutes. We only had breakfast there at the Page. The selection is expanded and the quality of food is superb. We will definitely go back and stay at the Library again.

Tapas at Library

Mumbai, India

Decided to go back for some Tapas at the Library after an excellent dining experience the day before. Ordered salsa n chips, soft shelled crabs and a glass noodles and shrimp tapa which we had eaten before. This time they came with bacon as well.Which is an issue for us as we dont eat bacon or pork for religious reasons. On bringing this up, the staff was apologetic.We continued with the remainder of the meal and left after dessert.The remaining food was good as usual. But the sore point is- The chef cannot adhoc add any protein not mentioned in the description of the dish in the menu.And it was clearly not mentioned.The dish contained only shrimp as per the menu. Secondly-They didn't offer to replace the dish and charged us for the same which we paid and left.It was after all at a great price point of 99 THB but the management needs to really pull up its socks and the team needs to learn how to do damage control because sometimes a sorry won't cut it.
