We stayed at the Fontana for seven days. Two rooms one for us and the other for our two teenage girls and 10yr old boy. This is a nice clean, well serviced hotel. Staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and beds very comfy with handy free mini bar that the kids enjoyed.
However this hotel is not walking distance to the main shopping areas or the beach. Although the hotel run a good one way shuttle to a central drop off point.
The first couple of nights were spent on level 2. Unfortunately we endured an unbearable smell coming from the bathroom drain. We advised reception and they asked us straight away if the smell was coming from the drain. They then promptly moved us to the 3rd floor where we had no further problems with smells. Also much better on the 3rd floor, although the view is not great there is one. On the 2nd floor we opened the curtains to a concrete wall, quite claustrophobic!
The breakfast was good with lots of choices and the pool area and pool are nice with lovely planting. However not for sun worshippers as this area gets very little sun.
There are several restaurants across the road. Taxi into main shopping etc around $3.
The hotel made a special effort on one of the girl's birthdays with a cake and card which was a nice touch.
Overall a good stay and the staff really make this hotel.
