Recently had a three night stay at the Mokara for a business meeting. The group I'm with usually stays at either Hilton or Marriott properties so this was a change. After staying here, it will be tough to go back to the old routine for our next meeting location. As the name says, there is definitely a huge spa aspect to this hotel...something you're not going to see at a typical hotel.
Check-In was quick and the person behind the counter was very friendly. She even escorted me to the elevator, showed me how to use my room card for accessing the floors and then got me on my way. The room was great. My biggest issue when I travel is looking to see how clean the room is. I was not disappointed here. The room was clean...really clean. The room was fairly standard...bed, desk area, flat screen tv. The bathroom is where this place excelled. It was huge...all tiled floor, glass door walk-in shower, separate toilet room and a giant tub. Really a high quality atmosphere.
The meeting room area was nice and our group was able to secure wi-fi access without any issues. The hotel does offer guests free wi-fi, but coverage in my room was spotty at best.
I did not use any of the spa services so I cannot recommend whether it was good or not, but I did pass by the spa area several times and it looked very classy. I also did not dine in the hotel, but they do have a very nice looking restaurant on the bottom level.
The hotel is located right in the river walk area. Go out bottom level access and you're on the river walk, so you can't beat that.
Overall, I would have to say this is one of the nicer hotels I have ever stayed in. Got spoiled a little bit and now it's back to the ho-hum Marriott and Hilton properties.
