The area is close to the convention centre and great if you are there for a convention . At night the area is very quite and nowhere to eat or go within safe walking distance . If you are wanting the beach it is too far to walk . The hotel has a nice refurbished lobby which also has free... More

I'll start with the good. Easy access to the icc, good breakfast and friendly staff. The bad. The first time I've been to a 5 star hotel that didn't provide water. Only 1 person at check in and check out. I waited 20 minutes to Check out. A distance from the beach which isn't ideal

I would have given it one star if it weren't for the lobby being so nice and the doormen being so friendly. I was otherwise very disappointed with Hilton. Wifi was not free. Parking was not free. Then, we called the front desk from our room and asked to place a local call. They put us through and never informed... More

Firstly there was no one at the front to guide us as to where to park the car or enquire if we had any luggage. The lady at the front desk was completely incompetent.
