  • 6.0.Good

    A lot of construction and banging throughout the day. However there is no notification. Requested a new room as the closet door fell off and bathroom was disgusting. Staff were very accommodating. Not all rooms are updated. Owners appear to always be watching, but not friendly at all. Told by staff whom they were. They are also quite rude to staff, which was hard to watch.

  • 2.0.Poor

    The only good thing about this hotel was the pool (it was beautiful) and the selected dj. Outside of that THIS PLACE IS TRASH! The room was way below standard. I only got 3 channels on my tv the entire time I was there. I was served old food which made me sick. I was to at the least be refunded for the cost of that poison, but I have yet to see any refund. I spoke to two different managers on different occasions and still nothing was done. Even after returning home I still can't hear anything or see any refund. The Blowfish certainly BLOWS! The room was bad, everything was extremely over priced, there were certainly no Covid practices in place, the food was awful, and the cleaning staff steals things from your room if you're not there to watch them (we caught the guy redhanded). Do yourself a favor and AVOID THE BLOWFISH!!!!!

    Excellent use of limited space and a top choice social melting point. Staff are generally friendly, professional and observe anti Covid masks always.

    They should be embarrassed if I am honest. If the standard of rooms I stayed in were a reflection of the entire hotel then this is a mess. DO BETTER!
