We stayed for 10 days, had a few issues with the front desk and admin re our booking but has now been resolved. Hope no-one else has to go through same embarrassment.
We were on 7th floor, very spacious high-ceilinged room, view from very large balcony was spectacular!!! Cleanliness and age of furniture and fittings left a lot to be desired. Needs a BIG reno.
The noise from the machinery building the new pool was somewhat annoying through the day when we wanted to have a quiet nap. Also building noise from nearby houses, JACKHAMMER ON CONCRETE FOR ONE WHOLE DAY!!!!!
The food in the dining room was great. Buffet breakfasts plentiful and lots of variety. Dinner at night was exceptional, beautifully presented, tasty, plentiful and lots of choice. The young (and older!!) waiting staff were very helpful, chatty, patient and only too happy to please.
The daily shuttle bus to town, every hour on the hour to 10 pm, was a great bonus.
