First time visit to Nabq Bay area,previous visits have been to Sharks Bay.Approaching hotel gives you a good first impression and a large reception area means plenty of space to move around while booking in registrations are completed.Walking towards room for first time couldn't help but notice walls in corridor were dirty,found out later, week before they had a violent thunderstorm, rain poured in through roof.Would have been nice to see some form of cleaning the walls during our stay but non noticeable.Room was basic but very comfortable.Food was to a good standard but everything was similar to food we have had over the last 5 years. Negative point food area windows need a good clean as they were very dirty.Pool area was very clean and plenty of sun beds available.Short walk through nice hotel gardens brought you to the beach which also had plenty of sun beds available.Once again the best thing about the Oriental (apart from the weather) is their staff.All very friendly and very helpful nothing too much trouble for them. Holiday was for 10 nights and we enjoyed the Oriental so much we were disappointed we had not booked for 14.Hotel is opposite couple of English style pubs,BurgerKing,McDonalds and KFC as well as many mini market stalls.On one occasion we were unhappy with selection of food so went to KFC and for £8 had a meal that was filling and cooked differently to the way over here and was much nicer.One note of caution local market traders are desperate for business so they will keep hassling you. My tip is say no thanks and keep walking,some even follow you so keep saying no thanks.We both agree holiday was very good so would be happy to return to the Oriental again.
