Friendly staff and service had a lovely stay there will most definitely visit again on my next trip. Food for vegetarians was a little problem but with a variety of restaurants close by that was covered.

Great hotel and very friendly and helpful staff. As a returning guest, they all seem to remember some quirky bit about your last stay!! Room with a view of ocean - great! Overhead shower and wonderful crisp linen. Breakfast definitely meets all possible requests! Will be back soon.

We had an amazing stay at the very well located with easily accessible property. The staff at the hotel was very welcoming, co-operative and helpful. Being pure vegetarians the hotel staff took good care and did provide us with facilities to cook meals which we carried. Would definitely recommend others to stay here. Thanking each and everyone at the hotel...

We stayed in the Radisson Hotel for two nights. We booked the romance package. We arrived at the hotel at 7:00pm. It took 15 minutes to check in. The staff are very friendly but they could not really fill us in on what the romance package entailed. We arrived at our room to find rose petals on the bed, surrounding...

I think it is important to note that we were on a site inspection of the property for work but left disappointed by some issues that we had with the property (ultimately all boiling down to sub par housekeeping). The big thing for us is that every issue we had was ultimately avoidable if someone had checked the room properly...

Excellent Accommodation in this Modern Hotel with a great bar and lounge to relax in. The concierge was very helpful and the check-in quick and efficient. The Valet parking is a very good service as the hotel gets busy and parking fills up quickly.

Don't let the location and star rating fool you. A weekend was spent at this establishment and several peculiar and disappointing things happened. The decor and linen of the hotel is beautiful and clean. The room layout is supposedly high-end with an open arch to the bathroom in order for all to see the sea view, but size is average....

Pleasant hotel - we asked for the safe to be fixed but that never happened. The rooms are lovely with beautiful views of the ocean however we are two single women traveling and sharing. Room and the bathroom has no privacy at all - I would not recommend if you are not a couple.

Stunning room layout, clean, neat with stunning views of the ocean. Great internet access. The hotel was very full during my stay and the lifts were a little slow but that was not too much of an issue.
