    It is a very well executed themed property, with a strong coastal style. The apartments are very comfortable and supported by a good variety of amenities - cafe, restaurant, bars, gym, pool, spa, etc.

    The look of the property is great. The pool, gym and bar are excellent. The staff are friendly and helpful. The manager Harish gave a brilliant welcome. Shame about one guest who liked the sound of his own voice talking loudly into the night. Great stay.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    I stayed in a very beautiful and comfortable studio. I was amazed when I stepped in. Very easy to feel at home here. There are several eating/dining options on the premises. The gym is great and they have fitness coaches there as well. If you want to use the pool note that it is small and there isnt really much space to hang out pool side. Also, all patrons to the pub and restaurant will pass by the pool area which I think creates too much traffic for it to be private enough. The location is definitely great. Short Uber or taxi ride to all dining, bars, clubs and shopping in Westlands. I would consider staying here again.

    Comfortable stay. Cleaning staff not very attentive. I had to ask for towels and toiletries every other day. Front office staff very responsive and helpful as well as security personnel.
