I booked direct with the hotel on phone. We stayed three nights from Jan 8th.
The lady who handled my reservation was fantastic ( deep apologies as I didn't remember her name).
She recommended the one bedroom king suite with Horizon Club.
This accommodated hubby, myself and 16 year old son. We had a great 4th floor room on the corner with fantastic views out to Green Island , the wharf and back round to the esplanade - could just see the edge of the esplanade pool! Truly amazing and could watch the many ocean going catamarans and yachts heading off to the reef each morning and returning in the afternoon. We were welcomed with a bottle bubbly and the fruit bowl was refilled every day.
Sure the distance from lobby to our room was about 150 metres but when you got to the room the breathtaking view was absolutely worth it. It was also fairly close to the pool however.
The pool was nice and clean and was pretty warm as well id say about 28 degrees C.
Horizon Club was good value to be included with the 2 hours of complimentary food canapes and drinks every afternoon from 5 to 7pm.
Loved the L'Occitane bath products. I would most definately return to this hotel.
