    The hotel was so comfortable and the staff were so freindly and cooperative especially Karim at the night shift of the front desk and Noura at the guest relations though her recommendations were not that good. They upgraded our room to sea-view and it was just great. The location was nice, and not too far from everything

    Fabulous

    Family orientated, easy access to Corniche and shopping. Friendly helpful staff

    Room keys rarely work and have to be changed on a daily basis - frustrating with young children in tow.

    it is so quiet and looking over the sea, unlucky we were that we didn't catch the swiming pool openning my kids were promissed that it will be open in one or two days but we stayed 5 days without it.

    very poor breakfast bouffet, untill now I am over charged on my Mastercard by one night. I don't know what they will do about it.

    Superb

    The hotel staff were great especially Mr. Imad at reception. The pool staff were amazing as well especially Mr. Iskandar he was very helpful and accommodating.

    The pool wasnt open and this shouldve been mentioned to Booked.net prior to all customers. The reception never had any change and always dealt with Lebanese pounds instead of dollars so i was losing on money conversion rates.

  • 6.6
    Good

    A nice, clean hotel right on the corniche. Taxis cost US$10 into the downtown area or to Hamra. The sea view rooms are much nicer than the standard rooms.

    Be warned: the pools are closed during winter (check with the hotel before you book) and there is nothing for children to do if they are not open.

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    The view over the Sea and Corniche is simply fantastic - Premium Room! Hotel waterside resort and cafe/restaurant across the prominade very good. General hotel location also very good. Beds very comfortable. Nice balconies. Good TV reception and selection. Advance booking assistance and infos were excellent - thank you.

    Housekeeping attention and simple room appointments: hooks in bathrooms, locks on doors, pass keys not working, clearing balcony tables, toiletries not refilled, toilet seat not fixed. Front desk staff general knowledge for helping visitors was too weak/inconsistant. Housekeeping requests needed to be repeatedly voiced. Some breakfast variety and improved breakfast service would be appreciated. Better attention to billing process would be helpful.
