What I like most is the friendly and courteous staff from the Front Desk People to the Security to the Concierge, to the Housekeeping and Restaurant People. We are greeted with genuine smile everywhere we turn to. In general, the facility is within international standard. The rooms are comfortable and offers refreshing view of the garden, the sea and the...

We really like the ambiance of this hotel. Except for the pool and spa areas. The pool was hot and murky due to lack of water movement. Investments need to be made to modernize this area. Other hotels in the area ALL had cool clear water in their pools. Tropika and Marco Polo to mention a few. The spa jets...

Give a little space for improvement. :-) Specially the floor it would be very good, neat & clean if it is carpeted. But if not at least it must be finely polish with wax. The air-cons must be generally cleaned once so that it would give a cool air during hot days. Muchly thanks for the great service.

Nice Buffet choices,spacious rooms with balcony. I just didnt like the fact that they didnt have any smoking area. I cant even use my room's own balcony for that. Other than my rant, We did enjoy the stay although they might want to consider renovating the rooms since it's kind of old already.

The room was flooded with water 2 different nights. I was denied a room change. The staff was professional and friendly. The little ants in the room were annoying and the maid service was terrible. The room was not cleaned very well.
