I stayed here by myself on SPG points and had a very pleasant stay. Staff was great and friendly. (The waiters can be forgetful at dinner time, ha.) Rooms were comfortable (they even have a Fox Movies channel in English) and quiet. A couple of tips / things you might want to know -
1. Cabs are cheap, but rush hour traffic is brutal. One night it started sprinkling and getting dark downtown (about 3 miles down the hill from the hotel) and it seemed like everyone in the city was trying to hail a cab. I could not get one for about an hour. Don't even ask me how I got back to the hotel - let's just say it was an ordeal involving walking along the dark highway at one point. Rush hours seems to be from 5pm to 7pm. So have a plan for getting back up there. (If you like to walk you could probably walk down the hill to the main city center in the morning in about an hour or so.)
2. The hotel has a funny vibe in the public areas (lobby and bar). To me it seemed like all the local wealthy hipsters and business men like to go there in the evenings and smoke and drink and then go home. The bar looked beautiful but too smoke filled for me to sit there. Free internet access in the lobby but www connection spotty.
3. The spa is very pleasant and I had a nice back massage for 30 mins for 45 TD ($33 US). Buffet breakfast good but a bit overpriced at around 25 TD.
4. I checked out at 6am no problem, but I learned that reserving a taxi the night before is prudent at that hour. The airport is only 7 mins away with no traffic. That was the only time the cab driver did not turn on his meter. He wanted to charge me 15 TD and I got him down to 10 TD as we were half way there which was probably too much, but I don't need to grind down some poor cabby that was up at 4am a few bucks. The airport was a breeze to get through security. (It had been about 5TD on the meter from the airport to my hotel days earlier.)
5. I didn't see any kids and I think the outdoor pool might have been closed, but I would come back here solo or with my family again. Enjoyed my stay.
