The rooms are modern and nice. They are decent sized and comfortable. The staff is great and friendly. A welcome change from local B& B's, which are nice but lacking in amenities. The views are nice, but the windows need cleaning. A problem across from the Ocean.

Check in not really friendly. Was welcomed with "you know check in time is from 3pm?" Didn't even manage to open my mouth yet and the first impression was already going down the drains. Thats not what you wanna hear after driving your car for nearly 400km at 5* establishment. Let me tell you, we have arrived at 2pm so...

Check in process was pretty much a pain. Arrived and didn’t get the best of welcomes. In fact, didn’t get a welcome really. Arrived early but weren’t able to get a room until check in time. Sure this is fine. We spent a few hours up by the pool and relaxed until ready. During this time, our bags were left...

We were given a king bed instead of twin beds which we were confirmed with in our reservation but since the stay was for just one night we thought it was too much of a hassle to change. The parking is super expensive and not included and the prices is not advertised (wonder why?!), the restaurant was ok for burger...

I've stayed at the PE Radisson several times now and it never disappoints. While it's on the far side of the "Boardwalk" area, it's literally just a walk across the road to the beach and a 5 minute walk to the boardwalk. It's great if you love walking along the beach as there's a fabulous walking/cycling path that follows the...

This is a really impressive hotel in many respects: helpful and friendly staff, good restaurant, smart-contemporary design to the public areas, wonderful views from the picture windows in the bedrooms. But, the design of the bathrooms in the bedrooms is bizarre: no door separating the bath area from the living area, and the badly-fitting door to the toilet had a...

Almost perfect stay. The room was brilliant with fantastic sea views and spotlessly clean. The restaurant, bar and cleaning staff could not do enough for you.

Hotel and rooms was up to Radisson Blu standards (clean, comfy bed and helpful staff) The only issue we had was parking when we arrived very late at the hotel. But one of the porters managed to find a spot during the night and parked the car for us.
