“Very good and good value hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2013

Stayed here for three weeks on a business trip. Fantastic rooms, was with colleague and both had lovely rooms. Rooms were huge, clean, nicely styled and very comfortable. Staff were very good and did their best to accommodate all of our requests, which were many over three weeks!! Restaurant was good with some excellent choices and staff and cook very friendly and helpful. Only major downside is infuriating wi-fi that drops every ten minutes or so on a regular basis, maddening if you are skyping or working on-line, only reason not 5 star.

Room Tip: Sea view best on second floor, we had 201 and 219, best in the house

Ok hotel with absolutely nothing mentionable. Breakfast was a bit off and carpets were a bit dirty. I agree with the reviewer who called their service "hit or miss". A little extra effort improve this hotel tremendously.

A lovely hotel, with immaculate interior decoration, neat big rooms. Helpful reception guy(cant remember his name), helped from check-in & with room service, WiFi setup (it seemed he was alone on duty). Restaurant service somehow failed to impress, it was empty, the food i ordered was out of stock. the waiter seemed not sure of everything....breakfast was a nightmare--everything on the buffet was dry. Very quiet & ideal environment esp for business stay.

Room Tip: sea facing top floor

The hotel main reception area has a lovely ambiance. The rooms are beautiful. Large and well furnished with tasteful decor. Ensure you ask for a ocean facing room allowing you an awesome view of the Atlantic Ocean. Bear in mind you are a few blocks up from the beach. The service is sub standard and somewhat slow.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a sea-facing room.

Stayed here for a week in March for Conferencing. The hotel is beautiful, clean and neat despite the fact that the beach is not as shown on the pictures but a block away.

However, the service of the staff leaves much to be desired with dinner times being the worst and breakfast a total lack of imagination. There was one shining star amongst the staff, Bronwyn, who made the challenges bearable with her manner and concern over guests.

The so-called Wifi proved to be a myth which was not resolved even upon our departure five days later.

Room Tip: If you actually do want to get a view of the ocean, then select a room on the highest floor facing t...

Stayed here 2 nights for business. The hotel is not on the beach as one might expect from its name, but it is close, 1 block away. All rooms face the ocean, but you can only see the ocean from the highest floor. The hotel and the rooms are very stylish. There is covered parking underneath in case you bring a car. Recommended place to stay.

This hotel has lost some of its original charm but still remains a good place to stay. The staff, with notable exceptions, require ongoing training in client relations and dealing with problems timeously. It is within walking distance of the beautiful beach and wonderful restaurants, which is in its favour.
