I stayed at the Elite Grande on a business trip. From the moment we stepped into the Airport the hotel started looking after us. The pickup from the Airport was professional, courteous and, with the non-stop commentary from the driver, was actually quite fun. On arrival we were met and booked in very quickly and were shown up-to our suites. The rooms are big, with a self contained kitchen, big living room with TV and surround sound, a king size bedroom with en-suite and a separate toilet. All in all very comfortable.
Breakfast the next day was a standard buffet style, with the option of a freshly cooked omelette. Pleasant enough without being delicious. The staff are attentive and polite and overall provided a good start to the day. As a business hotel it is first class, the rooms allow for meetings to take place without having to perch on beds.
The facilities are very good, two bars that provide a welcome relief from the days work and gym facilities that are a bit basic but provide a service.
The food is actually quite good. There is a buffet style dinner every night which is complimented by an ala carte menu which is mirrored for room service.
The hotel itself currently sits in near splendid isolation in an area which is clearly earmarked for development, but with the current economical downturn this may take some time. It is however within walking distance of a top class mall, which is worth a visit if just for the food mall.
Al in all this is a very good hotel whether you are on business or sight seeing. The staff are friendly and attentive, rooms are of a good standard, facilities are good and the food is very nice. Go on, give it a go.
