6/10 Good

Staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious and have air conditioning that works. A Fridge in the room was quite handy. Lovely shower cubicles. Mosquito repellant spray in the restaurant for dinners was exceptional. Food was a hit and miss and also expensive for the quality. Disappointed with bath towels in the room, stained, old and, unpleasant. A good clear out of these is required by the Housekeeping team.

The staff were very helpful and accommodating but overall there needs to be a big change as it felt like a motel to me and not a resort as the name suggests.

A great location
A great location. With a few simple improvememts it could be a very special hotel. Information lacking at check in about meal times, etc. A map would have been useful forvsuch a large complex. Frustrating to find pools locked and toilets out if order. Food good but service a liitle slow. Staff friendly and helpful but lacking direction.

My two cents
Unhappy when the hotel brought in a very noisy dozor to pave the water front at a time the hotel was full and guests were at the restaurant for breakfast/lunch. Very inconsiderate and disrespectful to guests. I was not impressed at the lack of variety and choice at the restaurant. This being an Easter weekend the hotel didn't prepare any special menu or event. Seems the resort was under managed or has no business creativity for special occasions. There are too many men (old) serving at the restaurant and service is extremely slow and ineffective. The young girls seem to get frustrated at the lack of leadership and efficiency. However, I was pleased at the friendly service by the receptionists and housekeeping staff.
