I was very pleased with all the staff and management. Everyone was very kind, pleasant, and helped me to feel at home. The food was very good at all meals, and if I ever desired something that was not on the menu they were eager to accommodate. I was very impressed with the chicken curry, and asked the chef for...

Good gym and game room for kids. And the view from the balcony on the back side of the restaurant is gorgeous. Apapa ports, container ships sliding past... More

Stayed only one night in this beautiful hotel, but enjoyed it a lot. Staff is very welcoming and friendly, that aspect is really perfect. The lobby is impressive with a warm atmosphere. The rooms are luxureous, excellent bathroom also. I have one comment/suggestion. Make it a bit less cold in rooms and lobby and restaurants. Both my colleagues and myself... More

A solid hotel, some of the rooms and especially the bathrooms are dated but everything else works well, the food is acceptable but not startling and the communal areas all are well maintained. You won't be amazed but unless unrealistic won't be shocked either
