We stayed at Escale Oceania for a few nights when our friends recommended against staying in the main city because of traffic issues. The hotel itself wasn't too bad, but nothing special either. The rooms are small and the bathroom and toilet divied, but okay for a short stay. The 3 stars are for the hotel as a space. However, we enjoyed our stay (5 stars!) because the people there are extremely polite, friendly, courteous and very helpful!
While we were trying to avoid city traffic by staying outside, it was ironic that on the first night when we decided to go to city for dinner, we drove round and round for an hour with no luck with parking...We drove back reluctantly to eat at the hotel restaurant (totally anti-climactic) but it actually worked out very well! We're both vegetarians and so were skeptical about the menu, but Omar (the person who runs the restaurant) was so nice and polite, he offered to prepare a custom meal for us- pizza and salad and it was fantastic! His friendly interaction and service made us go back there for dinner the following 2 nights, both with custom meals again- we didn't even bother trying the city because we felt taken care of. Over those 2 evenings, we got quite chatty and Omar even gave us tips about gifts, souvenirs, nice spots... all in all, a great stay! I only wish there was more around the hotel, but that's another discussion altogether.
