This is a very tired and dated property. The Club rooms are something out of the eighties, the bathrooms are just plain dirty. The main (breakfast) restaurant is abysmal in terms of food and service, not to mention chaotic. The one 'oasis' in this property is the Club Lounge, which is so good, it's difficult to see how it belongs...

I like to stay in Intercontinental hotels but this hotel stay was the least desired Intercontinental hotel stay for me. When I arrived they offered Intercontinental hotel chocolates, which were decent. The room's furnishings were outdated and the fitness center and other facilities looked nice but the treadmills and equipment were too worn out to use. The location was good,...

We stayed 2nd week of August, All inclusive. This is a great hotel to stay in. Staff, whether they are front of house, housekeeping or waiters to bar staff, they were all very friendly and extremely helpful. 3rd floor pool is very relaxing and surprisingly not busy compared to the bay shore pool. Beach isn't great as they are building...
