Stayed here for a few nights during April 2008. I found the place to be very neat and tidy, and the rooms were quite comfortable. This hotel has great facilities for groups to get together and bond at either the poolside bar, or make use of one of the bbq's around the site.
I would suggest this hotel to others, if they are in no need to travel too much, or have their own car, as even though it is not far from the city centre, it is still a $15 - $20 cab ride each way, plus there is not a great deal of restaurants or other facilities really close.
Having said that the restaurant within the hotel is also very nice, and suitable prices. Albeit closing the breakfast service at 9:30am is a little steep. I'd prefer the sleep in.
Unique Quality: The hotel boasts a beautiful lagoon like ambiance, with a well designed pool central to most rooms, all set up with a bar as well. The statues and greenery surounding the rooms really gives off a 'getting away from it all' appeal which really helps you to unwind at the end of a long day.
A somewhat old, but perfectly adequate hotel in a great setting by the sea.
The room was a little spartan but the rate reflected that. Plus, it was clean, tidy, uncluttered.
The location is a bit of a drive from the main drag, if nightlife is your thing.
Unique Quality: Nice gardens with a bar located in the centre.
Across the road is a small shopping complex with a great second-hand book store and a great hot pie shop - both places staffed with very friendly people.
Pleasant stay in a nice room. Lovely grounds with a beautiful pool.
Unique Quality: Very open plan, including rception
