            The hotel has functions every weekend on the lawn in front of the hotel. These functions always have a noisy band or DJ which keeps you awake until midnight or later. When complaining of the noise, the staff say that we booked cheap rooms through Booked.net, therefore we should be happy with what we get???

            Close to pool and casino.service was always good,Pool was very good

            It was a bit expensive.

            Excellent Car Valet Service ..friendly staff

            Casino well overdue for a make over....too compact and not enough gaming tables

          • Older travelers
            5.4

            Good restaurants

            Renovations at present made stay very noisy. Unable to use balcony.Moved room but still bad on days work was occurring.

          • Group of friends
            6.6

            The friendly staff. Always helpful & obliging - a saving grace for the Hotel.

            It was not a five star hotel. The tariff is too high for the facility. Bathroom had shower over bath and taps behind the shower - which is difficult for an older person. Balcony was very small and overlooking carpark. Too much mini bar stock and overpriced breakfast menu.

            Great rooms, Great staff & Grat service

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            great situation by the beach, good pool

            although the room was supposed to be deluxe it is hard to reconcile that with the view of the carpark from the window

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            We liked spa room ,gym sauna and pool and enjoyed restaurants. We were able to have a relaxing time.

            were originally given room overlooked by pile of dirt and black plastic fence of construction but were changed to better room after complaint . In our opinion better rooms should be massively discounted or customer informed of these temporary disruptions to amenity when booking. Also were charged for bottle of evian water that was on bedside table when we got room but we did not use, it may have been opened by someone previous to us and not cleaned up. We thought it had not been opened and did not use it

          • Couple
            6.2

            The pool

            Airconditioning too cold and unable to change or turn off

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            We enjoyed the location and choice of restaurants in the Casino area

            I think the building is in need of an overhall and looking tired

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Enjoyed stay very much, the pool and pool side service fantastic, and room service was very prompt and friendly.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            Care free enjoyment and relaxing.Just good value.

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            The staff were friendly and very obliging. The ice machine meant we always had cold drinks. Complimentary laundry.

            Bars etc. meant walkways/access was were crowded at times

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            I found the staff to be excellent,their attitude and demeanor was very friendly and cooperative.

            8.8

            The room. It was beautiful. Even received chocolates on the pillows at night time. Loved it! Many of the staff were lovely.

            Waitresses didn't know the menu (sunset restaurant). Menu said Cocktail of the week, however the waitress said there wasn't one and so did the barman.Waiters talking in different language in front of customers - loudly.
