The service and hospitality was amazing. Came here for a conference and I was thoroughly impressed. Majority of the staff are students in training/practice and they are clearly under expert management.

The Cardiff Hotel & Spa was excellent for the value. The hotel was tastefully decorated, clean, & quiet. The onsite restaurant's food was good. Furthermore, the staff was very courteous and helpful. Also, call the hotel directly for your transportation needs. The staff was able to make arrangements prior to my arrival. The hotel uses Tour Wise transportation company.

Cardiff Hotel is a good location if you need to just get away to some peace and quiet. No long buffet lines; no schedules. Just going at your own pace. The property is clean, quiet; staff is very courteous, friendly & helpful. Everyone was welcoming. A shuttle takes you to a private beach 5 minutes away

I think this hotel is great for rest. This is their focus and the hotel truly accommodates that. The rooms are spacious, modern and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful and the food is good. Additionally, its proximity to other attractions in St.Ann makes it easier to be able to explore other places and interest. I enjoyed my stay

I stayed here for 3 nights with my young baby, when I was craving hot water and air-conditioning during a month long stay with my husband's parents up in the hills! From the moment I arrived, I had an absolutely fantastic experience. The staff could not have been more accommodating and helpful, and were friendly and relaxed so that I... More
