We stayed at the New Kings for a week, and had a great time. Mostly because of the amazing location - if you want to chill in the near area, you have everything you need in the plaza below: Woolworth's, Spar, Thai restaurant, coffee chop, hairdresser, dermatologist/beauty spa, clothing shop etc.
The rooms are nice, but the view is not great.. We asked for a sea view, but were situated so far away on the sea side that we only could see the sea when standing up in the one corner.
Bed is very comfortable, and pillows as well.
We asked for a minibar three times, but never received one. It is really not great not to have a fridge in your room!
Our phone in the room did not work, and when I told reception they were so nice and helpful - they offered to organise our restaurant reservations for us! Unfortunately they failed to do so, and did not even tell us, which was very disappointing, and obviously caused problems for us at the restaurant. Our phone did not get fixed either...
Breakfast was really great - a perfect variety of fresh fruit and berries, cereal and yoghurts. Croissants, cheese and cold cuts. Bacon, eggs, sausages, mushrooms and tomatoes. Unfortunately, there were no more eggs on five of our 8 nights! Not that we ate late.
Small things to make the stay not perfect. The girls at reception were all super nice and friendly, but it is a problem when they do not actually help out with the things requested/needed.
