Nice quiet location. Friendly staff and excellent facilities

Very close to all the action. Bed super comfortable. Amazing pool. Massage staff and prices amazing. Front of house staff could be more customer focused. One particular staff member had her family staying at the hotel, her non disciplined son was running riot screaming punching guests, also pushing other small children in the pool whom couldn't swim. Instead of being corrected he was smiled at and thought it was a big game. Support staff having family visit as long as it's recognised there are other guests staying too.

Over 40’s bro town don’t stay if under 30.
Ok so I’ll start with the positives - the location of the hotel is outstanding just around the corner from Bangla Rd legit 1.5 minute walk.Pretty quiet so you don’t get noise from Bangla only music that plays at the sports bar which is cut off by 12pm.The hotel has two seperate bars with live sports for each and the cost of drinks is very good and reasonable 80b beers and 100b local rums.The food is also good and well priced.The ladies working the bar are bubbly and sociable and always have a smile on there face and do there best to ensure you are comfortable and well served.The pool is small but relative for the size of the hotel.The room itself has a comfortable enough bed a ceiling fan and good air con. They clean the room daily and do a good job. Negatives. The bathroom can smell a little and the shower is one of those ones with an in room water heater which isn’t great for temp control or high water pressure. I had a billing issue where myself and a good bloke I met were double charged for rounds - after raising the issue the senior lady (she is an absolute gem) sorted it out for me and fixed the bar tab.I came back for another night though and paid only cash but on check out they bit me up for 260b on things I paid as my taxi was waiting - I didn’t really have the time to argue the point so just paid. The laundry lady is a disgrace 1.3kg she said it was 1.5kg and refused to wash my clothes because I saw she overcharge. big argument at reception young lady was no help.
