A beautifully built hotel with great rooms, swimming pools and well located, The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Could have been a perfect experience and location to celebrate Christmas had with a wonderful complementary Christmas Eve Dinner had it not been for 2 issues that need to be considered if your plans take you there on a Holiday. We had to request the for our room to be set up TWICE on Christmas day and ended up having to spend 35 minutes playing Pool at the Bar till our was being made. We came back to the hotel for lunch on the same day only to find out that our only option at the restaurant that day was an $80 buffet holiday dinner. Since we only wanted the excellent Hokien Mee, we were escorted to the Bar, where it was less than convenient to enjoy it, as this was the only place that offered A-la-crate. We had a similar experience that evening for dinner.
