We stayed at the Doubletree at Hilton for one night as we were going diving on a Liveaboard for 3 days before returning. We stayed in a very basic, standard room at the side of the hotel and the view wasn't great. Check in was smooth and pleasant. Room was clean and adequate. Location is great. Just on the Esplanade...

We had a lovely room with double doors that opened to a balcony. Slept with the doors open (prefer fresh air to A/C and the temp outside was perfect for sleeping). We woke up to a beautiful sunrise. Room was clean and hotel is within walking distance to shopping, the fleet terminal for water excursions, the Esplanade lagoon, and many...

One side of the hotel overloads the Espanade with great view of the harbour and the sea beyond, very well placed and offering all the services that you come to expect from an Hilton hotel and which for us had the added advantage of having a couple of laundry rooms for guests use so we were also able to catch...

Bathroom was a bit small, but accommodation was clean and in a good location. Close to the Esplanade where we found many wonderful restaurants and shops to enjoy. Walking in the evening along the waterfront, dining and enjoying the sites.

The hotel is located on the Esplanade within an easy walk to the centre of town. We upgraded to an ocean view room with a little balcony which was lovely. Very comfortable beds, bathroom a little small but adequate. Breakfast was very good and staff helpful.
