Very Average
This hotel and its staff are long overdue for a remodel. The rooms are old and worn, the corridor lights on each floor are mostly not working, consequently it is very dark. Found front desk staff rather unhelpful. We lost our car keys in the room and it took over 2 weeks and many phone calls from us to locate them and then have them sent to us. Pool very small.

Quick visit with Family
The apartment was a good size with all the amenities that you would need. Free wifi was excellent. Would have liked a higher floor but apparently booking through Agoda was for a basic room only. No free upgrade to a higher floor offered without charge - the only difference was a potential view over the trees to the water. Front of house staff very friendly and happy to book the shuttle to the airport when asked. Will probably return.

great location
bed comfy
this was our 2nd stay in a week - the first being absolutely brilliant , I don't know if we fluked the first stay , but this one was extremely disappointing ! The hotel was all but empty and yet unless we wanted to pay an extra $20 (even after mentioning it was our second stay in a week ) we were put in a room with no view (understandable if they were at full capacity , but even the staff said they had literally no one in house ) we paid $20 each for breakfast , arriving about 40 mins before close , and the food was absolutely inedible - honestly I wouldn't have fed it to my dog - luckily we were able to get an omelette fresh cooked - but even that was only just okay ! the maître Dee was rushing us so much that my husband even commented 'have you got a hot date mate ?" he couldn't get us out of there quick enough and hs limited English mean he didn't even get the joke and replied YES !!! If this is what is the norm - we wont be coming back - there are so many more hotels along that strip and we will be choosing another one in future ! The only good experience was n check out and the lovely girl on reception remembered us from our previous visit . Not up to Hilton standards at all and we have stayed in Hiltons world wide - very disappointing !

comfort , location , excellent staff.
It was awesome - right from check in the receptionist was so friendly and helpful all the way through to check out ! The bed was amazing , the view spectacular and location right near all the bars and restaurants. the only thing I could fault was there was no compendium in the room so we didn't know if we could order room service or not ? Breakfast was great , though the coffee machine was crap ! I requested late checkout and was thrilled when we were offered a 3pm check out . we will be back !

If you need to work, not the best place to be.
Quite, friendly staff, free parking
The hotel do not have free wifi internet which, I could not check my emails/ for work in my room or send a file/email on my work laptop. Hotel offers guest purchase internet but just for sending and checking of that few megabites. I do not think it is worth paying for the price. Room wise is good and staff working there are friendly.

The stay here was good. Great location and the staff are excellent. The pool area is the biggest let down. Not the place to stay if you're planning on relaxing around the pool.

Families with older children
Stayed 2 nights in June 2015
During the first stay we had requested for connecting rooms with the kids but the request was not fulfilled though the checkin staff worked hard to find us rooms on the same floor. We then requested again for connecting rooms for our upcoming second stay at the hotel and was assured that they would register the request for our next stay 10 days later. When we returned for our second stay 10 days later we were informed that due to over-booking we did not have a room at the hotel at all. We were left helpless with no choice but to accept the unwelcomed alternative of being put into an unknown apartment hotel in a different part of town. We did not receive an equivalent accommodation and no acceptable explanation why we had our rooms cancelled without notice, especially as we had reminded the hotel of our second booking during our first stay.
