Was such an amazing stay with you in the hotel, I also appreciate the cleaners who are doing their best to ensure that we sleep in the clean place that does not cause us sinuses. Keep up with the food you serve

Stayed in a wonderful room with awesome view. Service was friendly and quick. Breakfast area may need to be upgraded a bit but overall a wonderful stay. Gym area has been upgraded and is superb. Hotel is situated close to the beach and a Virgin Active gym so location is ver convenient.

I am satisfied about the outstanding services rendered by the hotel, I will definitely visit it again and recommend it to my colleagues and friends. The staff even quickly prepared a room for me as I was not feeling well on my arrival and it was not yet check in time.
