Detailed review by ProfMagellan
Overall this is a good hotel but needs far tighter management. The room was well appointed although the lighting system was absurdly complex. Ultra-comfortable bed
and 17th floor afforded a good view of the city. The Marina restaurant was first rate. The reception area is horribly cramped and, on arrival, (room not ready of course) I have had a warmer greeting in bulk standard Holiday Inns. Breakfast on the terrace is super. Nice garden area with hammocks but sadly poory brought up children are allowed to run amock. Located by the sea, it is quite a long way from the city centre. Expensive for what it is.
I am a Marriott silver card holder but apart from a late check-out this seemed not to matter to the slightly dizzy check-in staff.
