I booked a business class room and was amazing: Spacious, nicely decorated, well furnished, large comfortable bed, coffee machine that made excellent coffee, good sized bathroom and a big balcony with chairs, table and sunbed. Warm, friendly and smiling staff. And the location is Wonderful.

The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms come with separate shower and deep European style soaking tub. The hotel is right on the waterfront with an infinity pool over looking the waterfront, with a lot of outdoor dinning and... More

I stayed at the Radisson for 6 nights last week and can't think of a single thing that was wrong with my stay. The customer service was the best I have experienced in any hotel in any country in the world... and I have stayed in a lot of excellent hotels. Furthermore, the restaurant was so good that I rarely... More

Our family suite was more like a well appointed apartment. 2 full Baths, a full kitchen, 2 full bedrooms, with a pull out sofa in the living room. The on-site dining had several menu choices. The breakfast... More

We stayed 5 nights at this hotel and upgraded to a ocean view room at a steep cost, not sure if it was worth it but we did get breakfast which was excellent. We had to change our room after the first night because they failed to put us into one of the upgraded large business class room that we... More
