Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Staff were friendly and efficient even while holiday makers were being evacuated in droves. I hope this lovely hotel and its staff manage while we’re not visiting. I’ll definitely stay again when all this global chaos is over.

Poor value for money
Booked for 3 days' stay. Hotel staff seem to lack leadership. Hotel seems to lack management. Considering what they charge, the offering represents poor value for money. Inadequate lighting in rooms for reading. Very little general info available for tourists.

Nice room, pricey amenities.
The room was nice. However, the price for breakfast changed every time we asked, from $20 to $28 per person for what looked like a regular breakfast. $28 can buy you breakfast for 6-8 people at the local store. They also wanted $6 per kg for laundry service.

not value for money, bad customer service
It stated clearly that the 2 rooms will have bathtubs when I booked and there is no bathtub at all in any of the room. When I asked to change the room the lady in front desk (ms future) was not helpful gave us a hard time and we were in hurry for a tour program in the morning, so we just gave in. The air cond is Not cold in the first 2 nights in room no. 36, but they sent someone to repair. It was ok on the 3rd night. There was no towel in room 38 after they cleaned it, and when we requested for the towel, it took quite a while to arrive, after 2-3 reminder calls. Also, there was no bathroom mat too on the last night of our stay too, we didn’t bother to request anymore.
