When I saw pictures and I reviews about this hotel I thought it was paradise. I was disappointed when I stepped in. However I tried to look the best of it .. I didn’t have any other option. The room floor was designed with the most cheap tiles. The shower and a old grey curtain!!! I’m not a fan of that at all!. The housekeeper safe the deal! She cleaned so well for us and try to make this room pleasant. Breakfast was good.
Please, post real pictures of places like this so people can have a better idea.
We really enjoyed our stay and liked the hotel and the staff very much, especially Sherlynne in reception, and Matilda kept the room very well. The gym is really first class and the Business center is good. We liked it so much we would not be surprised if we book another time. We also think for what is offered the hotel is good value.
On things we would change or didn't like:
In the bedroom shower curtain, much prefer a screen.
The pillows were not very comfortable.
The bed was very hard. On writing i realize we didn't ask for a topper
The gym needs a weigh scales
A small annoyance was your claim to happy hour. At Blues happy hour excludes cocktails- I don't think i have ever seen that anywhere else. Also Gin and tonic half hour is not 2 for 1, its cheaper, not quite the same.
There is something petty about towel cards and personally i don't like the fuss.
The transfer was a bonus but the quality of the vans was very poor.
Now , if there was one thing that would make a special difference it would have to be new beds on the beach with mattresses. I know they are hard to manage but from a guests view I would think worth it.
When I look at photos on line I always give favor to hotels that offer luxury beds. It gives me confidence in my expectation and the culture of the hotel. Like your gym with amazing equipment It is noted and gives very high guest satisfaction.
Another real plus (if you think like me) is that there is not a casino linked to the hotel. It is a must not have for me.
That's my list so you see not much so thanks from us!
