    The sea views were fantastic and the privacy we enjoyed was most welcome. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. It was really a most enjoyable experience. This was our third visit to Beach Hotel and I certainly look forward to going back in December.

    Please have more halaal options for Muslim guests. Can the breakfast menu be varied after maybe three days or so, five days of eating the same things can become quite boring especially for those people who are staying for longer periods.

    Big mama was very helpful and always willing to help breakfast was very nice until the last few two days when they had 200 police officer booked quality of the food was not good.

    The reception staff were not friendly at all , no customer care refused to transfer me to a room facing the sea, just because I was on a longer stay, toilet was not working proper, rooms were not cleaned on time and tv reception was poor no remote

    The location is excellent. My family enjoyed the sea view and the walking distance to Ushaka Marine. The food was up to standard and my family really enjoyed themselves.

    The housekeeping was bad and the place has changed a lot since my stay in the 1990s. I wish they can improve on that and also try to buy or clean the dining room chairs. Unfortunately I was overcharged and I am still waiting for my reimbursement.

    Very good

    the reception service and their spacious double beds

    They don't accept accomodation of 3 ppl (i.e. myself and my parents) on the same room. The aircon on both of the rooms were not working. The Tv's on both of the rooms had no remote control. The variety on their breakfast bouffee was limited.

    Even though the outside is noisy, once in your room it is very quite. The staff was friendly and very helpfull. The rooms are done very good - almost like being home.

    Other guest very loud and inapproriated in the lobby and the dining room. Pre booked parking would have been nice.

    Good

    Ocean view from the room.

    Cleaning service at the hotel and breakfast are definitely require drastic improvement. There were hairs of perhaps previous guest all over bathroom. There were small flies in orange juice when tried to pour it in the glass(disgusting!). Fried eggs instead of soft were made hard and smeared all over the plate.

    Fabulous

    The beach was near, there were a lot of stalls, too the public peace was not bad, and the tourist situation. The steak of restaurant pier107 that existed on the first floor was delicious. W.C was able to be watched on the television. The staff was also kind. Especially, "Big mama" was a good person. Breakfast is also delicious.

    the room was little bit...old;; and EV too.
