Excellent rooms

I'm sorry that I had to visit this hotel in such a rush. It looks like fun. The lobby was full of people, and a very loud activity, that made the experience a little bit annoying during the check-in. But the room was beautiful, purple colours and big windows. Nothing to complain about.

memorable Vac/holiday Superior quality

Excellent hotel, superior room, and service. Staff were exceptional and patient withlanguage barrier. 40% (?) of stall spoke English. Hotel restaurant is well known locally for their superior breakfast buffet, Largest and finest I've experience on a weekday. Several Tours were booked which allowed for easy pick up/shuttle. Highly recommend the 8 our city tour....excellent. Found this hotel to be much better than higher rated hotels in area (Trump was a disappointment).

Arrived at the hotel. Very nice staff and lobby. A shock they charge guests $10.00 per day for parking. Impossible to eat anything indoors between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. only room service and pool side. 92 degrees and 100% humidity isn't a pleasant enviorment for an outdoor lunch

Great breakfast? I beg to differ

We booked this 5 star accommodation because of the raving reviews of their breakfast. Let's start with the good. Great location, near many food places within walking distance along with shopping malls. Fantastic room - spacious, clean rooms. We stayed in the junior suite. Beautiful hotel. Free wifi. Enjoyed the pool facilities too. Breakfast was not the greatest experience. There are lots of choices but guests seem to flock to the food like scavengers - yes, there's variety, however no flavour. The day of checkout, we had to leave early and we're told that continental breakfast would be available in the lobby. This consisted of filtered coffee, powdered milk, dry muffins and a few pieces of fruit - a far cry from the buffet breakfast the hotel is infamous for. Disappointing experience to say the least! If you stay here, make sure you get value for your stay with the "infamous" breakfast and not have to endure the horrors of the continental mess!
