Stayed at the Gabs Sun for a night in June on business, and I'd certainly return for a holiday.
They have an excellent casino, great poolside bar and very good food in the restaurant. The service was great, very friendly staff which included a free transfer to the airport.
I was in a room the other side of the pool. which was very nice, but as I was at the start of a trip with a very heavy bag I could either have done with some help to the room, or a lift up to the first floor. Rooms were cheap, approx. $100 for the night. As others have said, the hotel probably could do with a bit of refurbishment, although this may ruin the faded glamour of the hotel, which I quite liked.
I have to say at the end of the stay the staff went beyond the call of duty to help me. I had taken the free shuttle to the airport, and once there had realised that I had left a hat in my room. I made it clear to the driver that I really didn't need it back as it was cheap and replaceable. 30mins later the member of staff found me in the airport, with my hat in his hand... very, very good service.
