Awesome Location only let down by subpar food
Posted Sep 15, 2016
If you're looking for a hotel with Night Life, don't read...
This is a hotel for families and people looking to relax & sleep early & wake up early...
Otherwise, the hotel's location is its highlight. very spacious beach & large pool. Rooms are nicely equipped & spacious, the Internet is speedy enough & covers all the hotel nicely.
However, our biggest gripe was the food & very very slow service. Aside from Breakfast, which was quite Ok, all other food we tried, a la carte or buffet was just not up to the standard or price we paid.
Also, the same item's price will vary if you pay at different places in the hotel. for example the Buffet is cheaper if you pre-pay it at the reception, a burger or pizza is cheaper at the bar vs at the pool or room service. It's the same exact item, just more expensive for a mysterious reason.
The hotel is generally understaffed, we would wait for a while before someone cleared our used plates at the buffet, or bring coffee, you feel it & the result is that the service, from check-in to room cleanup to food & drinks service is generally very slow.
It's a nice hotel, just go with the expectation that you'll relax & don't mind the time...
