Stayed in a family room from 14th to 20th December 2013. The hotel is right along White Beach, Station 2, with D'Mall just metres away. The beach is of course just perfect and right in front with sun decks always available. All sea sports at Station 1 and 3 are within walking distance either side of the hotel. Lovely clean pool available till late in the evening.
For me, the nightly entertainment at the hotel was the best, especially the band during the weekend. I spent every evening sipping the 1for1 margueritas and listening to the band while waiting for my wife to finish her massage.
Service was generally very good and prompt and everyone always had a ready smile. This led me to running up a substantial tab at the restaurant...
As for the rooms, as others have mentioned they are in need of an upgrade. On a number of occasions we saw cockroaches and often the toilet had a bad odour. I suspect there was a leak in one of the concealed sewage pipes. The family room was pretty small with inadequate storage facilities. Though the restaurant was pretty good and we had a number of dinners there during our stay, the daily breakfast was somewhat limited and disappointing.
