The Pelagia hotel restaurant is fabulous, only surpassed by the intuitive, friendly and professional service from our server Jayne. Can't wait to come back and eat again and have the Jayne experience!

The bathroom is too small for a family but it was very nice! The lounge downstairs... More

Elaine in the Concierge Lounge is the best! She is always pleasant and helpful. She makes me feel right at home every time I stay there. In addition, the upgraded decorations are really nice. I wouldn't stay anywhere else!
