    Based on the pics I saw, there appears to be only a few adolescent palm trees, I need lots of nice palm trees before I would ever consider a resort the best in the world.

    I'm waiting on Bernie Sanders to give it a review...but have a feeling he misses the "classic: style Russia of the 60's....the presidential suit had hot water 2 hours a day!!

    Looks pretty nice, I would go. Not so sure it is the best in the world but plenty good for me.

    I would be very leery about booking a room for $230 in a hotel that is purported to be the "best in the world". The story line of the movie "Hostel" comes to mind.

    Isnt Crimea that little country that says it doesn't belong to Russia and is at war with Russia and everyone is getting killed by genocide or something like that?
