From the blocked up toilet to the tired looking rooms this hotel needs to be seriously changed. Staff attitudes need to change. I booked through a travel agent and paid a full bed and breakfast for my 9 year old. Every morning for breakfast I was hounded to pay extra for my son's breakfast. When I tried to explain no...

Stop at this establishment just for a drink but decided to have dinner. Loved the decor of this restaurant, We were served by very polite waiters and the dinner was extremely good and afterwards sit outside by the pool lounge overlooking the swimming pool. This is one place in the Friendly City to visit.

The hotel is tired but being renovated, the staff however need an attitude adjustment. Our room wasn't ready when we checked in. The telephone, TV, aircon and lamp weren't working. Our bill was incorrect at checkout. We were very disappointed.

When I got here, my four night stay booked through my travel agent was not on the system, eventually managed to sort that out.

The room was comfortable and clean. The view was excellent overlooking the pool and ocean. The staff most friendly. The room-service was slow culminating in receiving cold food. Based on my previous hotel experiences I can comfortable admit that the staff made the greatest impression on me as to their friendliness. The breakfast area was very noisy, yet the food...
