Check in and service was efficient. We requested connecting rooms and this was organised for us. Fruit plate on arrival and water provided each day was nice. Rooms were of a good size and beds comfortable. We stayed as part of a luxury escape package ... the hotel is a little tired and would have been considered luxury about 20...

We stayed at the Hotel Equatorial for 2 nights as part of a luxury excape package. We would recommend upgrading, well worth the upgrade, free high tea daily and free drinks daily 5.30 - 7.30pm.

A little out of the main tourist area, but the hotel offered a regular shuttle service (we didn't use it, so can't comment on how it goes). Room was comfortable and clean. We had an issue with connecting with WiFi, but that was easily solved at the front desk. Similarly, housekeeping missed out room one day, but they came back...
