I have stayed here about five times. It never disappoints. From Arnold as the bellman and Ephraim in the Langi-Langi restaurant , the service is impeccable. A few malfunctions in the bathroom were only a minor annoyance. I love this hotel. Will stay again.

We booked the transfer from the hotel as you get met at the airport and the traffic is crazy! It was $20 US but worth it as it took about an hour and a half for a twenty minute journey. Comfort over cost in this case works.
