I didn't stay in the room but hang out with friends. The tea and juice (passion) was wonderful. Pastries, this was a hit and miss on some (I tasted everyone's cake at our table). The service was amazing, the lady who was waiting on us...More

I stayed in this hotel as I had flight to catch the next day. Staff were kind and very helpful. The room is small and pretty basic. Bathroom is old and amenities were not really up to Marriott standard. Food was great and cheap. There...More

Let’s hope the international design staff don’t ruin this one. The hotel built in the 1940s is quirky, comfortable and hugely relaxing. The rooms are individual, the service is great, the cuisine stellar and the courtyard and pool are just what you need after a...More

We booked the transfer from the hotel as you get met at the airport and the traffic is crazy! It was $20 US but worth it as it took about an hour and a half for a twenty minute journey. Comfort over cost in this case works.
