Had a lovely time at the Esplanade. It was Xmas weekend so there was plenty to see and do. Great spot as it's close to all the attractions and food venues. The room was clean and the bed soft. The complimentary champagne was a nice touch for our honeymoon. Will definitely return one day and will recommend the Esplanade to... More

The staff were wonderful, always helpful, smile on their faces and went out of their way to help when we needed assistance. Close to parks, city centre and the cooling Indian Ocean breezes. Managed the demands of many children and catered for their needs during a busy Christmas period. Will stay again.

Bought four tickets for NYE buffet, 6.30-10.30 all food and drink included $120 each. Arrived at 7.30 and informed that it was a three hour buffet,however desserts and cheeses removed at 9.40 and didn't want to serve another bottle of wine. Staff obviously in a hurry to get away.

Sadly, a 'Refurbishment' of a property, doesn't include an upgrading of service. We invested a significant amount for a suite on the 2nd floor.
