Couldnt get into where we normally stay so tried this hotel. Very friendly checkin. Beautiful large, spotless room.Great bathroom & excellent quality toiletries. Extremely comfortable beds and good tv with good range of channels. We were in an upstairs Garden Block room with balcony at the rear of the hotel looking onto beautifully landscaped tropical garden. Very quiet. The hotel is a 2 min walk to the waterfront (thus it's lovely and quiet) and a 7 min walk along the interesting waterfront to the main shops. The bar/restaurant decor is lovely and contemporary. My only critique is the pool area. The pool is ok but the poolside area is relatively small with only a couple of loungers and it doesnt quite have the feel of wanting to lounge around there for an extended period with a book. If this area was extended with more loungers & creating the same atmosphere and high standard as the rest of the hotel, it would make the property a complete 10 out of 10. We thoroughly enoyed out stay and will definitely stay again.
