We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with our family. We found the apartment to be spacious and light with an amazing view of the ocean and a very luxurious feel. The only comment I would make is that there were limited plates/cups for a large family and no plastics for the kids. The furniture and fittings in the apartments... More

Booked a 3 bedroom apartment at this hotel for 3days over the weekend to celebrate an 80th birthday. The place is amazing, with beautifully appointed rooms, excellent location right on the beach and with brilliant facilities at the hotel such as pool, spa, sauna, tennis courts, gym. A place that is hard to look past.

we hired a 2 bedroom apartment and were amazed by the size of it. 2 enormous living areas, dining area, 3 balconies, fabulous views from the 23rd floor. Building itself well located, playground and patrolled beach directly in front. 3 small blocks to walk to Mall and main restaurant strip. Lovely pool and bbq area.
