This hotel is acceptable, no more no less. Mediocre rooms and poor breakfast. Occasionally hot water in the shower but not every day. Service ok and nice staff. The gym is ok. WiFi worked occasionally - but only in the reception area. We stayed for two weeks. For such a long stay I would definitely choose another hotel, with more... More

This is my second time staying here. As usual, I liked it. Service was a bit slow, but I totally understand it since it's a Labor Day weekend. On our first day, the pool was closed because it is being treated after a series of foam parties. Originally requested for a room with balcony but we got a room without... More

I think the hotel is in need of some renovations like a new paint job, the rooms were small the bathrooms very tiny, the toilets you cant even flush toilet paper down my partner had blocked it a few times by forgetting. The pool area was ok but the fake grass was hot to walk on, no umbrellas for the... More

Pretty poor value for money. The room I paid for wasn't available. The staff were great about it, and gave me a free massage in their spa to make up for it. Hot water didn't work, although they were able to fix it really quickly. Breakfast was poor, hotel wasn't great, but the staff were really nice and friendly! Ice... More

I booked this hotel because the airplane tickets i bought fell a day earlier and there are no more available rooms with the other hotel. Upon checking in considering that we already arrived late (7:00pm) it still took them more than 30mins before we were guided to our room. The room is small to our taste and tv was also... More

However , this is and overpriced hotel with the standard rooms just toooo small. We had to pay to upgrade to a slightly bigger room with no balcony as the standard one... More

The location was good. Right at the middle if everything. Party, food, shops. Less than 1 minute walk to the beach side. There was something about how the front desk looks at you. Name was roxy. The smile was forced. And it's very obvious. Good thing there's Joy. I hope i remember her name correctly. She made my stay more... More

The hotel is right smack in the middle of D'Mall, so you never have to worry about where to eat or buy essentials. The room and bathroom had a simple, modern look, and more importantly, were clean. My only issue is that we lost hot water on our second day, although when we called up front desk, they did send... More

Will never stay in this hotel. Bad reception, bad management out to get more money from hotel guests by charging more. Paid everything in advance including vat and service charge but when we got to the hotel we were being charge extra for another guest.

Good Side Hotel offers a great location, You are literally a step from a lot of restaurants, shops and a few minute walk to the beach. Room was cozy, with a modern look. Bathroom keeps flooding, The door security is too much, it alarms after the door is just left open for a few minutes. You can hear noises from... More
