We enjoyed a pleasant weekend getaway at this hotel which we chose for it's convenient location, reviews on this website helped in the decision. We weren't disappointed, our room, which overlooked the pool and lagoon, had a private balcony which was a perfect spot to enjoy a sundowner, efficiently supplied by room service. The hotel restaurant only serves breakfast, which is a buffet, very good with a wide choice. A number of excellent restaurants are within walking distance for dinner or lunch and if a greater variety is desired, the town centre and Thesen's Island are a short drive away.
The room itself was comfortable, the air conditioner was really loud though, like it was running at full blast even at it's lowest fan setting, maybe it's supposed to be that way? Staff that we encountered were all friendly and efficient.
If I had a criticism it would be that additional staff are needed at breakfast to clear the tables, used dishes and bowls remained on the table for the duration of the meal. Having to pay for parking also seems very strange to me, I've not encountered this at any other hotel that I've visited!
Overall it was a great stay, I would return.
