Our family stayed here for 3 nights as part of a family vacation during the rainy season. The website was very clear that renovations had commenced but it wasn't to affect guests greatly. We arrived after dark and were greeted warmly at the reception and thanked several times for our loyalty to the IHG Rewards programme. Located opposite the beach front, the hotel was conveniently placed to the eating and shopping areas without being too close to big crowds.
We had booked two rooms and were able to get two superior rooms next door to one another in the Main Wing. The rooms were as far from the elevators as possible, a request I had submitted earlier. Rooms were lovely although they had not yet undergone renovation. There was a balcony but not much of a view since we were only a few stories up. In any case, the rainy weather prevented us from spending any time out there. The king-sized beds were comfortable and we slept quite well. Bathrooms were a reasonable size and while there wasn't a bath, we weren't bothered by that as we usually took quick showers anyway. Perhaps the only thing was that the corridors near the elevators were showing some wear but since renovations were due anyway, it should probably have been fixed by now.
Breakfast was a bit of a makeshift affair in a converted ballroom but the range of breakfast options, both Western and Asian, were more than satisfactory. I liked the fact that plastic plates were available for kids - a practical touch. The pool was also a hit with the kids, at least when the heavens didn't open up. A kids' club is also available to look after the younger ones, and while our kids had enough to keep them occupied, they did appreciate the ice cream. My wife and I also liked the spa experience. Although we didn't rank it as our our best spa experience ever, it was certainly a relaxing session and wished we had more time to go again.
Overall, an excellent choice for a family stay and we look forward to another visit after the renovations are completed.
