  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities

Great location on beach and close to restaurants, but old hotel (there was a towel dated 1978 in the bathroom) that needs renovating as well as sound proofing!!! Only received the one towel!! Wooden door to balcony was rotten - needs repair. Bed was comfortable enough for one night, but only had a sheet and no extra blankets. Staff were great but wifi was out when we desperately needed it - stafff didn't mention that the restaurant beside them had free wifi....???

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Airport transfer was complimentary, check in was easy breezy. We loved our beachfront balcony room. It was basic and awesome aircon. No bottled water was provided nor milk or ashtray. The pool opened at 10am and closed at 6pm. Quite preposterous to me. The food was good but the entertainment was great. Fire dancing on wed and kava on thurs. We will be letting our friends no where to go..... smugglers cove yes

  • Liked: Cleanliness

Stayed here just one night as a layover stop. Has a beach bar and restaurant. The wait staff very nice and friendly. Lots of travellers/backpackers here. Rooms are ok, but a bit dated. It was fine for what I needed.

That was my second time stay in hotel and if I know the hotel is change that much I will not for sure. Was really disappointed. Staff wasn't friendly like before, wasn't clean, food was wery nice, now completely different.... service is very bad, have to wait more then one hour for one beer.... more than hour for breakfast.... had a big problrms with beach towels and bath towels, each day have to call for buth towels, for shampoos, soaps.... when we ask for beach towel the lady of reception said they not providing baech towels... then another said and promise me, she wll det for us.... but she didn't. Wben we ask again she sent to us, and we had to keep them during stay.... what a shame! I did recommend hotel to our friends and some of them use to.stay but not more, already I told some of them to not going back, actually not going to recommend to anyone....

This was a nice place to stay. The food was not great. My biggest complaint, was that they moved me out of the ocean view suite twice, and then no one had booked it. I loved this room and ended up moving because the reservation desk and the desk didn't seem to coordinate. I would only book this room. Just know that while they have pest control, dorms do have bedbugs. This is a problem throughout the region.
