2 large wings attached to the main hotel. A large pool area with a pool bar inside the pool as well as one on the deck. A large sandy beach area. One large buffet type restaurant and four specialty restaurants by reservation. When they say all inclusive they mean it. I came back after a two week stay with no charges. Three meals daily. All liquor inlcuded; 4 bottles in room as well as a bar fridge with soda pop and beer. read hotel review

    We ate mostly at the Buffet. It was well stocked. The food was god and there was food for every taste. The food was tasty and there was ample of each item. On one occasion I didn't see something that I wanted and the staff went into the kitchen and brought some out.

    The room was only ok. However the hotel will be closed from mid April to mid July 2015 to do a refurbishment on the facility.

  • Service
    6.0

    The service was excellent; the wait staff were very attentive and after a few days knew exactly what beverages we wanted. The room was cleaned mostly right after we left in the morning for breakfast and the beach or pool. They responded quickly with issues we had on arrival and also when we had a WiFi issue on our laptop.

    The hotwl is right on a sandy beach. It is steps away from a flea market across the road; about 8 miles from the airport along large hotel row.

    I found the staff to be more than extremely courteous and helpful. A complaint (broken lamp) was not only within a few minutes on a sunday done, but also from the front desk asked, whether everything was ok. Language: language english. Spanish is also very well, however no german, although curiously all the signs, menus in german. Room cleaning 2 times per day. It is also 2 times a day the towels were changed. Everything, which used looks, even hung up again, will be exchanged. Cleaning available in the house, bag is located in the closet under the tv.

    We had a standard room with a french balcony, size about 30 square meter with bathroom and dressing room (if the walk-in closet so want to call. Good condition of all equipment: 2 king size beds, each as a double bed can be used, seating area with table, chest of drawers and was a night table with telephone, radio, bedlight. Closet with tv (never turned on, ka what programmes) with drawers beneath. Minibar with refrigerator, coffee maker and so-called ' liquer -dispensers', four upright hanging 1 liter bottles Bacardi, smirnov, red label whisky and cognac, for free service. Bathroom (tub, also available as the shower) with toilet. Smallest french balcony, a person could stand on it to outside to smoke. Air conditioning with a good function. In the room hangs thermostat however, it is old and clamped. The system are-unfortunately only three days before our departure with a cleaning of the area through the staff noticed-behind the small metallklappe above, these can by pressing against ejoy. Cleanliness without criticism, it is 2 times daily cleaned. In the evening during the food is, the bed was turned down, the towels again changed and the trash emptied.

    Sport: there was next to the pool a very well-equipped and visited fitness center (from 7a 19 hours). Eineindeutiges plus. Pool: i was never in it. Why? There are wonderful sea and beach a few steps away. At the pool often very loud animation, couches around close to each other, from the early morning reserved with towels. Children's swimming pool and kid's club available (not used). At the pool the pool bar, the care on the beach with disputes. It is there somewhat more frequently cleaned, the sticky floor from the many spilt drinks is in the afternoon often unpleasant. The same on the beach. There are also many beach chairs in good condition, they were always sufficient, however only very few parasols. These places are from 6 o'clock reserved in the morning. Curious because, very often emerges during the day no, it remains unused. Showers at the pool and on the beach. The beach is for a hotel of this size much too small! Everything is public, you can also in the neighbor hotel for swimming (where often it was empty is), but not their beach chairs and umbrellas to use

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    Main restaurant and 4 time à la carte (steakhouse, asian, italian and the krystal, the probably due to Nobel american to do). 5 bars located on the property, one at the pool/beach access. A 24 hour bar (sports bar in the main building, which also offers snacks eggshell). The quality of the food in the main restaurant was great. It was always fresh, one sees partly in preparation to. You can, of course, the american taste and it hot and greasy take (there are always burgers and fries ready), but it has a vast selection of salads, fruit, desserts and even amuse beech buffet. Sometimes there were theme evenings, otherwise, the menu repeated after a week. à la carte: always mornings 8-11 hours for the same night. It is not a problem, to get places! The steakhouse Nautilus makes in the evening delicious surf & turf, steak with crayfish, the italian chef but never was Italy, except for the starters has nothing to do. The asian is nice, but also badly. At the krystal we were not. All in all nice, but the main restaurant offers more. Atmosphere is typically american, with welcome and be-seated. Nicely set, but the drinks were partly (beer, Cola) canned drinks ☹ it must not be. The champagne to all meals is free, also for breakfast there were always bottle with orange juice mix to leave. Tips are gladly taken, the americans very much given, but the service has no direct impact, if you're not so.

  • Location
    4.0

    Direct beach location, distance to the airport by taxi (25 us $) about 20 minutes In Palm Beach, so the area the hochhaushotels, there is within walking distance of lots of other hotels, restaurants and a few shops. In the evening also ' amusierbetrieb ' on the other side of the town, on the highway. Otherwise there was nothing in the 'town' Excursions on the island: diagonally opposite, at the 'old dutch windmill' is a car rental from avis, the considerably cheaper than in the hotel (small car with avis with all kilometer, air conditioning and automatic 48 us$ Links to the public transport: the right and left of the hotel are a few meters farther bus stops. The bus to Oranjestad (capital) runs very frequently, about every 20-30 minutes. Often holds also a priv. Minibus at the station and take the same rate with (2 us $)
