Positive Reviews

Good spot with easy access to the beach

Just steps away from the property, water enthusiasts found it hard to resist frequenting the beach. The hotel offers ample activities, both indoor and outdoor, to ensure they cater to your desires. Additionally, those looking for a lively nightlife will be pleased as a number of nightclubs and bars are nearby.

Clean, comfortable guestrooms

The guestrooms are laid-back, spotless and well furnished. The rooms boast of ample modern facilities perfectly complimented by the tropical décor. The bathrooms are roomy and the showers have quite powerful water pressure. Most guestrooms also offer a superb view of the ocean.

Friendly and thoughtful employees

Guests are always received and treated warmly from the moment they arrive. The members of staff have jolly personalities that make guests feel welcome, adequately accommodated and relaxed. With special care and attention, the hotel’s personnel went above and beyond what was required to ensure that guests’ needs were met.

Negative Reviews

Time-consuming checking-in process

Quite a number of guests have complained about the long checking-in period. At times the reception area gets overcrowded and guests have a considerable waiting period ahead in order for them to be checked into their rooms.

Dull breakfast spread

The breakfast spread was a little bit lackluster according to a number of guests. They felt that the full English breakfast didn’t accommodate those on special diets as it had little to choose from.

Limited, expensive parking

Guests were disappointed to find that the hotel’s parking lot had few spaces and those who preferred using their own cars or renting one had to seek alternative parking options elsewhere. Others felt that the hotel’s parking fees were not easy on their pockets.
