After a few hectic days in HK we were looking forward to our 'pool-side' part of our holiday.
On arrival in 28 degree heat, we found the pool closed until April for maintenance (phone ahead before you book - hotel's website misleading).
We took a 2nd floor room, it was ok with balcony towards the sea; bathroom clean but with some silly monstrous 80's style jacuzzi taking up much of it. Double sink - but no space to put our toiletries so we used the second sink as a counter top. Shower dire as water splashed over the edge onto the floor - probably accounts to the smell of damp and mould that accounts for previous reviews. Wobbly wardrobe that made us laugh with 4 hangers......
More insulation is required between rooms - our room was next to a European family who got back to their room in the early hours (probably from the strip) and decided to make copious amounts of noise up and down the tiled corridors for an hour or so. Also we knew when they took loo time - the loo along with its pipework sounded like it was about to take off when flushed!
Restaurant staff excellent and probably the best thing about the hotel besides the balcony looking out to the sea, especially of an evening - food ok (better 300m away at La Gondala), basic breakfast.
This hotel could be a real gem, it has so much potential; I really wanted to write something positive, because of the hotel's wonderful location, the excellent restaurant staff, but the hotel accommodation just lets it down.
Would I be back, I'm not so sure.......
