The hotel was pretty and inviting. We had dinner at their restaurant and it was delicious. Very friendly waiter. The room was roomy and clean. Nice pool with comfy chairs and tables for relaxing. Great price.

We stayed here for one night post cruise. The rooms are very comfortable and nicely appointed. Just what you need for a quick stay. The hotel itself is a bit removed from any restaurants and will require taxis to get to nicer places to dine. However, I will say the restaurant inside of the hotel served a lovely breakfast with views of the gardens. The hotel staff, especially the bell staff, were very helpful in securing our luggage and recommending places to see.

We stayed two nights, good hotel, staff are very helpful, customer focussed and attentive. The hotel has very grand interiors and exterior. The pool area is large and quite unique and sits directly off the bar and restaurants.

The room was good quality, the beds are really comfortable and the amenities are of a good standard. There is a starbucks in reception, but I am to sure when it opens or closes are we didn't manage to take it wince when it was, it would be great to have longer opening hours!?

Food quality of an evening was excellent and staff are very attentive. Breakfast leaves something to be desired.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on one of the higher floors

Our recent stay was very pleasant and we enjoyed the understated but sophisticated interiors. The hotel lobby and bar area is very nice with vaulted, modern architecture and a view of the lagoon. We felt very comfortable in this sizable hotel that had a relaxed and welcoming air with contemporary, french music. The pool area has a very unique waterfall sculpture that cascades into the pool, has a two level deck and the stylish restaurant and open bar area is close by, for all your needs. We also appreciated the computer center with free internet use and rode the efficient, free hotel service shuttle to the airport with a 6 am pick up. The upscale french bedding and toiletries were very nice and we had a wonderful lagoon view. Additionally, the clean, modern restaurant with white furnishings was elegant and we enjoyed our morning breakfast with a beautiful view and pleasant service. The kindness of the staff also added to our stay by offering free water (when the Starbucks bar was closed) and their knowledge many languages. My only bit of disappointment was finding only two, and not four, pillows on my mattress for this caliber of hotel. Overall, a very good hotel and one I would enjoy to revisit.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for the rooms with lagoon view.

That means nothing great stood out, nor nothing bad. The rooms were clean and beds soft. The furniture and interior design seemed a bit dated. Probably 10 years ago was cool. We didn't eat the food or use the pool, so no comments there. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Parking was not free (as is the case with many hotels near airport and big city downtowns).
