I travel extensively, and have stayed at this hotel several times. The security is good, and the staff friendly, but beyond that, it is very ordinary, and in some respects, very 2nd rate. Do not expect anyone to assist you with your bags ! The power is unstable and on and off perhaps 10 or more times a day. The odd numbered rooms face the road, and neighbouring church, which are very loud until late. The even numbered rooms face the backup generators which are also loud. If you are of French descent, you just may like it, as 6 of 17 or so TV stations are in French, along with a couple of cartoon networks, music video channels, and sports channels. If you like news there is Skynews, CNN at times, and Aljazerra. If you like entertainment there is one movie channel in English, and sometimes Nat Geo channel. The food is the same everyday, with a buffet breakfast, ala carte lunch, and buffet dinner, and the chef's "special" of the day. No particular attention is paid to detail and each meal costly. The hotel has an outside smoking area by the pool, which is a new policy. Being by the ocean and closer to the equator, the weather here is always 30+ deg C. If it wasn't for the company booking rooms here, I would never stay here. Even in the writing of this review, the power and internet connection has been lost twice. Praise the Lord for laptops !
