              Good stay!”

              During busy time especially december holidays crowded. Another lift would be an advantage to the hotel. Website need to be updated hotel not 15mi sl from airport..that was still the old airport location. The new airport is almost an hour away. . Rooms big and spacious. Clean hotel. Very impressive 3 star u need another star !

              Perfect accomodation and facilities. The restaurant is a bit highly priced for the variety of food at the buffet.

              Beautiful hotel, wonderful location and stunning view of the ocean . The only issue was that the site I had used to book did not state that breakfast was not free.

              Staff need to be trained in Hospitality, Room not clean”

              Staff not hospitable, only two staff members were hsopitable and the rest expected you to do their job and get "room service"... Room now cleaned properly, found a dirty panty on the edge of the bed... on my first day at the hotel and in the room/... requested someone to come and remove it...
