Our family of 4 stayed just one night here before our flight home. We had two plantation rooms and these were most adequate for a short stay. The furnishings were nice, high level of cleanliness and good ensuite. The white shutters, tiles and outside palms gave a tropical feel. The location is good, easy to find, and just a short walk to stroll along the esplanade, visit the lagoon, shopping and night markets. Reception was pleasant but not as professional as most. Hotel facilities could have been communicated better in room - ie. there were hire cars and bikes on site but no details mentioned to customers - location of gym a mystery and things like pool hours, etc. also not communicated. Buffet breakfast was included in our room rate and we appreciated this - it was adequate but one of the poorer buffet breakfasts we have encountered. But certainly you won't go hungry. Would suggest that they try and keep the hot food hot and the coffee a little hotter than luke warm. A second choice of juice other than apple would have been good. Didn't try their other dining - there are many, many dining options available within a short walk. I did appreciate the fans in the rooms, as well as air-conditioning. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would stay again if we got a competitive deal - as there are many other choices of accommodation competing with them along the esplanade.
