Gym was well equipped and opens till 10pm. The toiletries provided were one of the best I've ever encountered. Ala-carte dinner... More

The breakfast buffet was not as wide variety at other high end hotels that you would expect, but... More

We were locked out of our own room for hours and added with horrible customer service who all of them are unable to manage the situation. Definitely not worth the price that we paid for!! What's worst is they did not compensate or apologise for the inconvenience they cause to us!

The hotel breakfast was very good. The fitness room had plenty... More

I had a very pleasant stay at the g hotel. It provides a very huge and nice breakfast table, beautiful pool and very nice big rooms. They had good service and polite staff. It was quite nice that i got some ice crème while waiting for the check in to be finished I would definitely go there again!
