I stay at the Imperial Beach Resort Hotel for a 16 night stay while on a business trip. The most unfortunate thing about this hotel is that you can tell that it was once a very nice place. Our local driver said that when the ownership changed a few years ago they installed their own people to manage the place... More

I spent a week in this hotel on business and whereas the name is impressive, the hotel leaves a lot to be desired. first of all it is a sealed hotel operating fully on AC. which is ridiculous considering its at the beach. i can excuse that they were trying to avoid lake flies but i think another solution should...

I stayed in the hotel with my wife, while she was there for a conference, the atmosphere was a bit dead and the staff were not great. I felt the place was a bit run down. Conference room was not ready on the first morning.

Four nights spend at the Imperial Hotel. The staff are friendly, the rooms are good. But no water heater/tea and coffee in the rooms. A few bulbs should have been changed, but that never took place. Mind your laundry, it comes the day after if you call for it! The food is great, a good variety. The place is nicely... More

Friendly and accommodating staff, elaborate breakfast, very slow wifi, clean and large room, large bathroom. Massive hotel, but with hardly any occupancy when I was there. It baffles me why, in the tropics, anyone would want to put wall-to-wall carpet in the rooms and corridors, rather than use tiles or wood, especially as in this season, the AC was not... More

My wife and I came here for our honeymoon in July 2014. The service is very personalized, something we cherished very much. Everyone from the top downwards is willing to help with anything. The rooms are very spacious and always clean. Supplies are always timely and plenty. Food is very good. On the flip side, one waitress is quite racist... More

Stayed for two nights. Hallway and room smelled although it seemed to improve the next day. The food was decent, although not great. Lots of locals down at the beach and pool area. They were not very welcoming and made the stay uncomfortable. The staff was somewhat friendly although difficult to communicate to. Wifi worked. This hotel's best days are... More
