Positive Reviews

Clean, spacious and well-appointed rooms

Many past guests were very happy with the condition of the rooms at the motel. As well as typically being thought of as really clean and tidy, the rooms were generally labelled as spacious and well-equipped.

Great outdoor pool area

An area of the accommodation that has proven to be popular with previous visitors is the outdoor swimming pool. Surrounded by tropical nature and containing cooking facilities, the pool area was seen as enjoyable and well-maintained.

Accommodating staff an asset

Rave reviews have regularly been credited to the staff members that represent the motel. Former guests have noted that, along with a warm and friendly approach, the service provided was described as really accommodating and informative overall.

Negative Reviews

Restaurant noise can be an issue

Based on the accounts of numerous past visitors, noise can be problematic when staying at the accommodation. The source of the noise was mainly attributed to the on-site restaurant, with it sometimes claimed that the guestrooms were not sufficiently soundproofed to deal with the clamour.

Breakfast not included in price

Although a simple continental breakfast is available, this portion of the motel was not regarded in the best light for one reason: its price. Previous guests have noted that breakfast was not inclusive with staying, and its cost was judged as somewhat high at times.

Wi-Fi not the best

A small amount of former visitors have been critical about the quality of the Wi-Fi that was offered by the accommodation.  On the odd occasion, the wireless Internet was considered to not have the best reliability or range.
