They are experienced and well managed but the rooms has an outdated look. The beach stretch behind the hotel are tiny and the entertainment (singer duo) is kinda lame. It is overall a good value for money and a satisfactory visit but I'd recommend younger couple & single travellers to stay in gourney drive or georgetown instead.
