Nice and very accommodating staff. Very pleasant and friendly. The restaurant's food was very good and seasoned to perfection. The scenery and views of the ocean were beautiful. This hotel is less than 10 minutes from the airport.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The hotel building itself is architecturally beautiful, high ceilinged, open and wonderfully decorated. The tilinged floors and spacious, brightly painted walls and ceilings made one feel cool and comfortable, a lovely feature in a warm humid climate. The facilities, such as the gym, restaurant and spa were what one would expect from a five star hotel and were fully up to the quality standards one should expect, I'm happy to say. However, the real high point of our stay at the Mabinat was the staff, all of whom were friendly, courteous, competent and extremely helpful. We would return to this hotel for this one thing alone as they made our stay there all the more memorable and enjoyable.
