Our expectations WERE exceeded. Sincere thanks to Seelan, the waiter who bent over backwards every morning to ensure our favorite table was booked, our mustards were available and who engaged us in a friendly manner every morning. To Carolina, a special thanks: You lived up to the mantra of the Oyster Box Hotel. You asked how to make our stay better. And when we asked you delivered beyond our expectations.
And to all the support staff, thanks for your friendly and sincere greetings each morning. Your smiles are a great start to every morning.
The Oyster Box has exceeded its reputation. The service ethic is impeccable. Sure there are aspects that may require some work but the management and staff go more than the extra mile if asked to correct an issue. From feather pillows, to towels, to Spa treatments, to maintenance of the shower, to shuttles to nearby malls and so much more....Thanks again. It was special!
One small issue which may require some address is the value for money of food served at the OceanTerrace Restaurant. Costly for quality received.
