My biggest issue was the toilet in room 426. The toilet had a funny and seemed to have a slight leak. I did inform reception and they immediately sent maintenance which was very professional and appreciated. However the spell was still there when I checked out. The water tap/dispenser of the shower also didn't come out nicely which was frustrating....

The room was smelling of wet carpet by the bed as if the cleaning ladies did not allow enough time for it to dry. There was no luggage stand in the room to place my suitcase. The TV remote was broken and was delaying changing channels. The fan was also not working I was also woken up ad midnight to...

The showers need to be improved. The water does not get hot enough and the entire bathroom gets wet from the shower spray. Room sizes were very nice with stunning views of the ocean. Airconditioners are much needed in the bedrooms. It was also highly inconvenient

Friendly service from all the staff members. I was impressed with the size of the room and how they've separated the lounge and bedroom. It's nice and spacious if you have a child. I would definitely recommend it to others.

The room was very comfortable and spacious. I Could have been more comfortable with a double bed instead of two single beds. The location is isolated from other amenities and the environment outside the hotel close to the beach does not feel safe with people washing cars and playing loud music. There were also lots of people loitering along the...

No air-conditioner (only a ceiling fan in the bedroom). A BIG NO-NO with the summer heat and for a hotel that claims to be a Three star, and that has recently done renovations. If the ceiling fan is switched on, it makes a noise which disturbs your sleep. No WiFi offered. Again a BIG NO-NO in today's environment. No loyalty...
