Prior to leaving home I had booked a dayroom here since we had a 10 hour layover prior to our flight to Auckland and arrived through Customs about 6am. The entire process of booking the hotel to checking in was flawless. We waited about ten minutes to be picked up by the Raffles shuttle van and were taken quickly to check-in. Half awake but excited to finally be in paradise I could see the devastation from the recent cyclone but I was confident all would be well. Upon checking in we were upgraded on the spot to a suite and it was large and wonderful for the six hours we were there. There was the odd bug or two in the bathroom on the ceiling but this is the tropics and was to be expected. We had a wonderful shower (they also had a jacuzzi bathtub) and fell quickly to sleep. The air conditioning was good but not great as I could only get the living room unit to work and not the bedroom and was too tired to call someone to fix it. Woke up feeling refreshed and had a decent meal in their restaurant. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing other than probably finding a different place for breakfast if I had the time. I do recommend Raffles especially if you just need a place to rest your head during a long layover. They quickly took us back to the airport at our request.
