The Doubletree, acquired by HIlton a short time ago, is undergoing major refurbishment in the near future. Already, some of the key Hilton values have been applied so the beds are spectacularly comfortable and service superb.
The rooms whilst perfectly adequate are a little tired in places. Bathrooms and timber-work require refurbishment and there is a need for more powerpoints throughout.
HIlton globally have still not realised that free, or very cheap, high quality internet is now standard fare and continue to overcharge for poor service. When this resort's near neighbours offer free, excellent internet thoughout common areas and guest rooms, you have to wonder what impact this has on Doubletree's sales. Certainly, we elected, after the first disastrous night, where internet access was throttled back to snail pace after only 20% of the purchased usage, not to repeat the purchase. So one sale at $27.50 compared to probable purcashe of say four days at$10 or $20 per day.
The excellent, in house bistro (The Deck) was definitely worth three visits during our stay.
There was also a very busy Hanuman on the premises, which I passed up.
