They are all friendly, helpful and accommodating. I would like to see them add a little tuck shop somewhere in order to purchase a few snacks and sundries. Otherwise, another great stay.

Great when you get off a long haul flight (or for a day booking when waiting for a late flight). Food is good, although service can be slow. Breakfast is pricey but ok. Rooms are refurbished and comfortable. Would use the hotel again.

This hotel totally exceeds other hotels in other countries of similar price. Beds very comfortable and the pool area is great too. Read less
