Smart hotel in a relatively quiet area of the city. Very friendly staff and good service in the bar and restaurant. Prices for food and drink are very reasonable compared with UK hotel prices. The food was good, high quality and very tasty. A fair range of choice for most tastes. The bar and restaurant area are well laid out and there is a large outside terrace with plenty of chairs and tables for al fresco dining. Breakfast was extensive with fresh coconuts & a straw for the more adventurous.
There is an outside swimming pool which is over-looked by the bar/terrace area - it looked clean but we didn't try it out.
There is free WIFI throughout the hotel which appears to be reliable and of a high speed.
Good choice of TV channels.
On the first night I was chilly in bed, even with the aircon turned off, but a blanket was produced as soon as I mentioned this, so no complaint there. The bed & pllows are very comfortable and the rooms very clean with bathroom restocked with soaps etc. each morning.
