8.2.Very good.
  • 6.0.Good

    Pros: 5 star, safe, enclosed therefore no one can enter the hotel except through security, spacious room, beautiful balcony view, barista made coffee for buffet breakfast, wide range of restaurants in hotel for convenience Cons: dirty and old bathroom, balcony door didn’t need lock, we weren’t shown to our room upon check in (expected this service for 5 star), breakfast buffet is confusing (sweets and savoury mixed), hotel is very far from attractions and you need a taxi to travel anywhere outside the hotel, restaurants inside hotel are so expensive (coca cola can $9 AUD), too service has a few associated with it above the price of the dish.

    FIND ANOTHER HOTEL, We had stayed here twice before, it was great. The place has gone down a few stars. dirty food stained furniture in the room, called to have it cleaned we cam back and all they had done was close the curtains, had to call 3 times to get minibar emptied out, finally went down to bell captain and asked in person, no facecloths or body lotion, loose panels coming off in the halls, towel rack coming off of wall. I travel a lot for work and have never seen such a dramatic drop in overall hotel before. calling it 5 stars is a joke, pool water was cloudy, on and on. Find someone place else going forward
