Overall, a very pleasant, if brief, stay at this excellent hotel. The location is good, near the beach and a shopping precinct. The food was excellent, especially the buffet breakfast, and I would heartily recommend the hotel. Lovely rooms, all beautifully maintained. Thoroughly merits 5 stars. On the day we stayed the lift, which is pretty small anyway, was very...

We stayed for two nights. The hotel was beautiful and clean. The room very generous in size with fast internet, good food from the restaurant and a beautiful view of the ocean from more than one window. Loved the personal welcome touches to the room! All the staff was wonderful and I would definitely recommend the hotel. If I could...

I had the pleasure if visiting this hotel and enjoying a cocktail party. Such lovely food and wonderful service. I was very impressed. The rooms are clean and airy. Lovely linen and towels. The prices are rather expensive but the view is wonderful. The gym is clean and well worth a visit

Only spent one night with a couple of colleagues. Apart from a minor issue with the airport pick-up (which gained me succulent cheese platter), everything went smoothly. Staff is willing to help. Got room with great view. The overall infrastructure is in good condition. My third stay in PE and possibly best accommodation so far.

The hotel was really clean and the staff was friendly and polite. All that is worth 4 points. But.. there was no real wall between the bath and the bed. Only a half of it. Perhaps modern, but did not like that. The elevators were slow and that was a problem especially in the morning. The third minus was the...
