We've stayed here twice now in a one bedroom suite. Although no water views, the hotel is situated in a very central spot and ideal if you like getting in amongst it. Love Kata! Good restaurants and a good spot to base yourself in. As mentioned by others, bacon only seems to be served every second day at breakfast time.... More

The happy hour was a joke. Real bad and low music, and nobody want to use it because of the prices. It was... More
