Had been staying at Waterfront for years. Its home for me all these years. Hotel staff area as friendly as ever. Food is great. Serenity of the place is worth a cherish. For consideration - Security policy should not hamper convenience as in the case of availability of taxi at any given time.

The pool is heated, and a good size for laps, the pool area is complete with chaise lounges…perfect for sunbathing.... More

It's Home away from Home ! But, areas for improvement - place free weights, reduce number of treadmill machines & encourage walking around the hotel grounds in the sunlight with fresh air (for Exercise Room).

Thank you for the experience in your hotel. It was really a nice place to stay here. I like the rooms and the serenity of the hotel. Just make healthy food alternatives in the future to cater to people who likes veggies. Dennis

It was a great place to have the family over as we have booked 3 rooms and stayed 4 nights at the hotel. The venue was excellent with beautiful spacious rooms and well maintained grounds. All was...

The location of the hotel, in the middle of a lush surrounding, makes you detach from the busy streets of the city. Standard room has a rustic ambience and decorated by old fixtures that bring a certain beauty to the room. Kudos to the management for maintaining the old air conditioning system works up to now. Breakfast is nice with... More

A great location/view right on the water, a nice outdoor swimming pool. Close enough to downtown by taxi. Staff was friendly and at times accommodating, but not always helpful when i needed help the most --- too rigid, uses policies as a cover without using some common sense/flexibility. Food was OK
