Lovely swimming... More

We stayed 2 nights and from the start you became aware that this place wasn't very welcoming! We obviously didn't fit the look of a business class family and were actually asked by staff if we were at the correct hotel! The pool was apparently for Olympic swimmers and not for people who wanted to jump around and have fun.... More

The Hotel Equatorial. Was first class from the service picking us up at the airport and everything inbetween. The staff couldn't do enough for us and the manner in which they did it made our stay that more enjoyable. The optional tour of the city was great too we were well informed by our guide who was very knowledgeable. Will... More

Arrived home yesterday after a 2night stay. Hotel was beautiful, clean and just like the photos. Food was amazing! Staff were lovely and very accommodating. Great location to all the major attractions and shopping. Transfer from airport was amazing in a BMW. Could not fault this hotel, highly recommend.

Spent three nights here between Wednesday 16th and Saturday 19th November. The service was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Everywhere was absolutly spotless. The breakfast was great with a very good selection. They also have a desk for booking your trips which was very handy and reasonably priced. Would definitely stay again.
