I first stayed here back in 2010, and have come here regularly since. Being an ex-local I lamented the demolishing of the Oceanside tavern, and the immediate area, but also saw the inevitability of the redevelopment of the area. The new restaurants at ground level serve the area well, the hot pools across the road have been redeveloped too, a new boardwalk on the beach front and improved facilities, together with the reforestation of the 'mount' volcano and what I remember as 'leisure island' have improved the look and feel of the area since the 70's there is no doubt.
The hotel rooms are large spaces, complete with basic kitchens, with fridge, microwaves, fridges, and plates/cutlery. there is a heated pool and spa, and gym. I found the service excellent, and there was secure parking in the basement. This place is all about location, and it's about as good as it gets, being right next to the beach, the mountain, and the hotpools. However, they let themselves down severely by being stingy with wifi, charging $25 for a 10 hour block is a ridiculous when you've already paid a premium to stay here. Free wifi would have hit this place a lot more 'excellent' votes I'm sure!
