Old rooms setup and old TV's.The place could use some renovations in the rooms' setup and bathrooms.It's really not worth the money one has to pay, even the Delux rooms are not so delux compared to other Premier Hotels in the Country.

Exceptional staff in an otherwise very average environment. Although fairly clean, the suite had dirty marks on the walls and carpets and was quite plain. The suite had a television set from the 80's, not that this was important to my trip but it is not fun for a family at leisure. The fridge stands on the carpet and was...

The hotel is located in close proximity to the beach, which is very convenient. The staff was very friendly and the overall service was great. The room was a bit small but good enough if you won't be in doors for too long.

Booked a standard room and out of courtesy I was offered a deluxe room thus felt royal. The hotel is very clean. The service is quite good and there is total security. The hotel is even closer to the beach and one can walk around any time of day...

The place wasn't professional firstly, they gave us a phone that didn't work and even when we walked down to reception to give this complaint, they didn't rectify this. Every time we had a problem or question, we had to walk up and down the stairs to reception because the lift didn't even work. The fan in our room didn't...

Reasonable cost of accommodation. Please work on family rooms. Some separation could go a long way between beds when you got kids accompanying parents. So far the booking was very quick, I was impressed with this. Good value for money.

The hotel is great and easy to find. The staff were really good . It's a good hotel with great potential. I was disappointed to see the whole bathroom and the recycled plastic teaspoon. The bathroom is clean but still from the 80's

The staff is very friendly, rooms are very clean. The only thing you can improve on is the food. We only had dinner once and decided to eat out for the remainder of the days as the food wasn't to our satisfaction. Besides that, I would highly recommend King David to people that are coming out of town.
