My family and I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in July 2011. The photos of the hotel were mixed so we didn't really know what it was like, but the rate was pretty good so we weren't expecting too much. The lobby is tired and needs updating. Our rooms weren't ready when we arrived, fair enough as it was only 1pm, but the front desk staff were not good at communicating when they would be ready, many trips over two hours back to the desk to check. And so we sat and waited in the lobby sofas which definitely need replacing, and the floor was dirty, cigarette butts and so on. My children were not impressed and I have to say if I hadn't prepaid the rooms I would have walked as there are plenty of waterfront hotels in the area to choose from. However - we eventually got our rooms, I had booked seafront deluxe, and I have to say I was impressed, the rooms must have been recently renovated and they were finished very nicely, with a lovely view of the beach. There was a day bed in the room, and a good-sized balcony with two chairs and a table, which were well used by me. The bathroom was very modern, with a rain shower which my kids love. The hotel only has one restaurant with pretty uninspired, and expensive, food, you are probably better off eating outside the hotel for a better range and much cheaper bill. I went to the lobby bar, again, it was really in need of an upgrade and didn't look like anyone had visited in ages. We played pool in the lobby and they delivered drinks to us, so not too shabby actually. The restaurant by the pool and the swim up bar were not open when we were there, not sure if that's permanent or not, couldn't get a clear answer from the staff. The beach is OK, they've got some good water activities and my kids loved the quad bikes (not sure the other beachgoers were too happy with the noise but there you go). The hotel arranged the firefly trip for us which I have to say was fantastic, really worthwhile, and the turtle sanctuary, which is pretty ordinary and only for the hardcore turtle lovers! All in all, an OK hotel but really well past an upgrade in the lobby, bar and restaurant.
