The location was fantastic and room was great in both size and furnishings. The aircon was far too cold and the pool was a lot smaller than expected.

Very overpriced for small room; terrible TV reception. Vivid is not an excuse to lower standards

2/5 Poor

Business traveller, Travelled with partner
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room didn’t resemble the images. It had a bad smell. Made us miserable, I couldn’t sleep at all the second night as I couldn’t open the windows. No room service for $300/night?!? The facilities were clean but dated. No ambition to create a nice atmosphere. Man at hotel reception was absolutely lovely trying to help us but we ended up leaving after two days, not getting reimbursed for the third night even after numerous calls with hotel management.

1/5 Terrible

Business traveller
I arrived at 6pm and was told my room was NOT READY. Check in was guaranteed after 2pm. I wasn’t in my room until after 7pm. Completely unacceptable Restaurant and bar were not open. Had to sit in lobby and wait basically after an 8 hour drive. Parking was full and had to park so far away from the hotel in an unsecured car park. Will not return.
