We stayed at this hotel for a total of 6 nights for our honeymoon. All I can say is, this hotel definitely is not 5 stars. It is the standard of maybe 3-4 and needs a completely new revamp as the hotel is old and parts of it are quite dirty. On our first day when we arrived we were... More

Beautiful lobby and grounds. Location is good. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Food at restaurant was good. Prices of drinks outrageous. Room was on the small side and the bathroom tiny. They provided no hair conditioner in bathroom. I liked the balcony. The pillows were too hard for me.

Very nice hotel with good location. Would perhaps not say fantastic or fabulous since property is partly in need of refurbishment. Lobby area is really nice and beautiful. I think part of the rooms have been redone. The celing in gym was leaking with water on the floor and the spa sauna area had seen its best days. We did... More

The hotel might have a good history but needs lots of work in renovation and staff, the lobby, rooms and service are up to 3 old 3 star level hotel. The big mistake was when we found in the room a plate of peeled & cut fruit aged at least 10 hours and without at least plastic cover.
