The hotel has a very nice location. Our room was facing the lagoon and during the morning, while trying to catch the sunrise, I would look out and see what's in store for me. On one side the stillness of water and yachts.. on the other, a flock of birds bringing life as they dive into the water to take their bath. It was a beautiful sight. Besides the view, what I also liked about this hotel is that it is very near the shopping and dining establishments. To get to the shops, you turn right from the entrance of the hotel. For restaurants, it will be nearer if you take the back exit/swimming pool area door.
Knowing that this is a 4-star hotel, I did not expect much (from the room and food). Cleanliness, however, was a big issue for me. Our toilet bowl was not cleaned well. Let's just say that the previous occupant of the room has left his/her 'markings'. I don't think the housekeeping brushed and cleaned our toilet bowl and I noticed that they do not have a toilet brush in our bathroom. Normally in other hotels I stayed in, each bathroom has its own toilet brush. This is the first time I encountered a dirty toilet bowl. I hope they do something about it.
Other than the cleanliness issue, this hotel is okay to stay in.
