The front desk staff is eager to help with anything brought to their attention. Plus, guests comment that the shuttle service is excellent.

Excellent rooms and suites

Reviews suggest that you'll be impressed by the standard of the accommodation at the hotel. The rooms and suites are clean and spacious with comfy beds and reliable Wi-Fi. Guests who booked one of the superior suites were impressed by the balcony and spa tub.

Negative Reviews

Noisy air-conditioning units

This problem doesn't seem to affect all rooms and suites, but several do appear to have rather noisy air-conditioning units. Some of them also make a banging noise, so much so that guests asked for a discount on their room rate.

Occasional complaints about housekeeping

Although guests generally find the accommodation is clean, there appear to be occasional issues with the on-going housekeeping service. Rooms and suites are cleaned in as far as towels and bedding are replaced, but things like emptying bins and dusting are occasionally missed.

Disappointing bar

Several guests mention feeling disappointed by the bar at the hotel, describing it as tiny with an extremely limited choice of drinks. You might want to head out to explore the local nightlife instead.
