stayed here for 3 nights and was my first time here with novotel. i stayed at a different hotel previously and apart from the location, this place is quite private and relaxing. it is a stand alone hotel so u will need to travel by taxi to malls or walk out. 30mins drive from the airport.
check in and out was okie quite speedy, front staffs are friendly and able to recommend local eateries around the hotel. room was spacious comes with bathtub and shower. bed is comfortable. room has free wifi but need to sign in every time u use it. the restaurant offers wide choices for breakfast, so dont miss that.
the swimming pool is great with sea view. it seems like there is a jacuzzi pool but doesnt looked functioning at this time. nearby, there are restaurants across the main road just ask the frontdesk or bell boy for direction. taxis can be booked thru the bell boys who are friendly too.
the only thing that the booking of transport to the airport from the hotel, the rates "varies" as we were given another price that cost more than the previous night when enquired. overall, recommended for business, leisure and families. would be my choice again.
