Spent two week at this hotel and couldn’t complain about anything. Was greeted with cocktails on arrival and shown to our room after a long flight. Staff were friendly and always willing to help. The main can get a little repetitive with food options but their a wide range of extra restaurants around the hotel which I would recommend, only two is an additional cost. Spent a day in spa as a birthday treat, staff were lovely and friendly. Amazing stage and entertainment throughout the day / night. Thank you Lasharna, Pauline, Rossani ( okay )and Garth for putting together a lovely show but thank you Garth for making my experience extra special by taking time out to go that extra mile.

We were a party of 8 in 4 rooms. One room was a handicapped room. All the rooms were clean, and tidy. Beds were comfortable,pillows soft. Water pressure was CRAP!! And had to take lukewarm showers, the water NEVER got hot. Room attendant was very helpful. The property was clean but really needs to be updated. Definitely geared toward families, but did have a nice adult only area. The food was plentiful, and we had many choices each day and night. Taste is just ok. The omelette bar was great each morning. Ate at the all of the specialty restaurants except the Italian one. Would highly recommended the Japanese restaurant, even though you have to pay extra $20 per person. The food is good and plentiful. Overall would recommend this location. Read less
