It's value for money staying at this hotel. Great breakfast & lunch. Nice big size hotel room even for deluxe room. Good internet & hotel location. It's about 15min to airport by taxi. It's a nice touch of service from Hyatt even with a simple welcome drink. Like the pineapple juice drink.

Good Hotel but facilities are getting old
This is usually my goto hotel for a short business trip. We booked rooms associated with club lounge. While the club lounge was good, it's toilet however wasn't very clean!!! The stuff in the club lounge was helpful but some I feel need to be train with proper manners. This is not to say they are impolite, but rather I feel they are not train to serve customers in a professional manners.

Strategic location and good view from hotel room
The structure is old, guess back in 80s but interior is well maintained. Make sure you ask for room facing the sea.
