We spent three days at the hotel in December, around Christmas. The room was large, spacious, aesthetically done and very comfortable. The bathroom was large with a tub and a separate shower area. The mustard finish gave a very warm, welcoming feel to it. We had a city view room so it did not overlook the pool but had a terrace on one side and a view of the road on the other. The box TV was a letdown. Who uses those anymore??? Turn down service was only on request. The outdoor pool is a hub of activities. The only thing is that it is surrounded by rooms on three sides with balconies. So you always have people sitting out and peering at you. At the same time, when people sit on their balconies, they have a perpetual audience. We were there on Christmas Eve, but there wasn't even a chocolate left in the room for us, let alone a gift. Usually when we stay at hotels on Christmas Eve, the hotel always leaves a small (token) gift, which my daughter really looks forward to. So she was very disappointed. Another big downer was the Christmas Eve Dinner. The cultural show by the pool side was nice, followed by a band playing largely old or classical music, which made for a rather sedate and boring Christmas Eve party. The hotel insisted that we had to pay for and take the Gala Dinner, which we had no problems with. But despite informing them in advance, when we made the booking and also when we checked in, that we were vegetarians, the large buffet spread had NO vegetarian options. Mr Houn Samedi, the manager in charge, was kind enough to get some soup, salad, veg curry and rice made and served to us; but the meal was definitely not worth the top dollars they had charged us for it and we felt cheated. The hotel is very centrally located. Most sights are close by, as are the Old, New, Night Markets and Pub Street. The hotel has its own tuk tuks if you are not upto walking anywhere.
