We had real difficulty getting the hotel to answer any emails. We wanted to know about what the different room types actually entailed other than just the size difference - i.e. separate bedrooms, a balcony etc. After many emails chasing them up we finally got a reply and had unsatisfactory answers to our questions. They also quoted us prices and told us for some of our dates the room types we wanted were not available. I straight away went to their hotel online booking site and booked rooms for cheaper and the room types were all available... Not good.
We stayed 3 nights and had two rooms for our group. The stay was fine - typical for a large hotel. Some staff were really good, some staff could not care less. Pool is really good but needs more deck chairs as is busy. Food is ok. Good taxis easily available and a price list available which is really handy. 10RM to city centre.
As mentioned we had trouble getting any real info on the difference on room types so will provide some info that may help some people. We had a deluxe room(standard) and a junior suite. Junior suite was about 120RM more expensive.
Both had separate shower and bath. The junior suite had a larger bathroom, a large writing desk and a large balcony (not a great view) with no furniture on it. Unfortunately the large desk takes up a lot of the extra space. Junior suite had a fruit platter. If you are just 2 people I don't think I would bother with the junior suite. We were 2 plus child and I am still undecided as to whether it was worth it.
Our room was lovely and quiet(which we requested) which was great.
