Great location close to restraunts night markets and the pier. The apartment was bright and roomy. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen did lack a cooktop and oven which means you would probably need to eat out a lot which is a good thing. Valter at the front desk was great and made sure our stay was a pleasant...

A well located hotel - good value, clean and relatively comfortable, with wonderful, helpful staff. As it is above busy cafes/bars/restaurants and the night markets, it can be noisy but sleeping was not a problem with the doors closed.

The Royal Harbour Resort, right in the city"s heart, is a great place to stay for one or more nights. This was our second time we stayed here.Because it's so close to all the restaurants and you don't need a car.We had a room facing the water and esplanade. The room was very spacious,modern and very clean. In the kitchen...

Perfect Location and view of the Esplanade, Jacuzzi was a bonus. The room was clean and had the basics. Walking distance to everything needed. Bed was not the greatest, quite hard and everything and anyone talking around the lifts could be heard clearly from the bedroom.

Enjoy staying here,can walk to most places.lovely outdoor area around the pool. I do prefer the apartment with the bedroom away from the living area. A bigger tv would be good for us older folk. Love the direct access to the esplanade .

This hotel is central to everything and the rooms are spacious, The view from the ocean view room is lovely. The staff are friendly and helpful. WIFI is ridiculously expensive and rooms do not get made up unless you stay over 8 nights unless you specifically request it which I think is too long.
