The Staff is very helpful, hospitable and glad to help. Rooms are clean and well managed. Wifi is very good. The best part of the hotel is the location. Very strategic. Though the property is split in two each across the road but they have a skybridge, and is quite convenient. The lobby is nice and the evening arrangements, music...

Can't fault the staff, however the hotel is in need of a refurb for sure. Biggest let down is poolside; never enough loungers and even fewer cushions. Another strange thing is the pool attendants keep dropping the parasols. I asked about putting them back up but said too windy; barely a breeze and no where to shade from the Sun....

Room was upgraded because I'm a IHG member. Kids received a set of stationery (color pencil & activity book) upon check in. Family room is spacious, a separate bed/ room for parents & kids. Family room is located at the new wing, hv to cross opposite the road for breakfast & pool. Breakfast was great. Kids pool is slightly small....

We have just had four fabulous weeks here. Excellent room and view, super bathroom, high quality varied breakfast and good food. The general manager Dominic and his second in command Susie were very friendly, helpful and smiley as were the rest of the staff. Lovely. The odd upset was caused by a few Brits who would claim loungers by the...

So I have to start with why the experience wasn't great. It took 2 hours to check in & they only showed us 3 rooms. Unfortunately these were smoking & overlooking a road & these things don't work with young kids. The reception staff were very flustered but not very caring as I stood there with my 2 kids (2...
