Enjoyed three nights stay here during carnival weekend. Room was large and looked out over The harbour. Staff all seemed polite and well trained. The breakfast buffet was extensive with something to suit every taste but maybe some of the ingredients could have been a bit better quality for a five star hotel. Indoor pool was lovely and very relaxing.... More

Wonderful stay, with lavish attention from the staff. Nice extra touches were drinks on the manager and training manager. These were most charming and spent over an hour conversing animatedly with us. Another quality that stood out was a free ride into town in a plush car courtesy of the hotel, when the electric taxicab in town proved unavailable. One... More

Needs some refurbishment but in general terms is ok. Good bed size, bathroom with independent shower cabin, good water pressure and acceptable wifi. Courtesy water in the room, great point! Lobby bar very old fashioned, needs an style update.
