This is generally a good hotel with some good amenities, but some things that may affect whether
It is the right hotel for you over a weekend.
The rates reflect that it is generally a business hotel - well over $200 pn during the week but under $100 pn on the weekends. As such this makes the daily charge of $12.95 a day for wifi crazy - to charge this in today's age is a rip off and must make a pretty profit.
The room was good and clean, reasonably comfy bed, large TV and handy desk space for laptop work. Tea and coffee facilities in room, although no kettle provided only a coffee machine. This may be a bit picky but only cardboard cups provided - not expecting bone china but still.
Bathroom facilities were adequate with decent shower and bath, albeit small.
Decent workout gym and both indoor and outdoor pools - more about these below.
Lobby bar was nice with good selection and excellent friendly bar staff. Bar food was good with a reasonable selection. In fact the full service bar and restaurant is a big plus point for this hotel. Very few if any hotels in this area provide this.
However the hotel on the weekends attracts a lot of families with young children which, whilst probably being great for such families, does tend to take over the whole place. The pool areas were full of children which basically makes them off limits to anyone wanting a relaxing time. And the breakfast experience was, well, more like being at a theme park restaurant. This will not to be to everyone's liking and if you are a couple or single looking for a chilled out weekend then you may well want to take this on board.
In general you get a lot for your money at the weekend rates in this hotel, but you must accept that the hotel has set itself for family weekend breaks. If this is OK with you then you should enjoy it. But it was not for me which is why I can only give an average rating.
