When we booked to stay at the Rotana hotel Trader Vics was one of the reasons we chose the hotel due to having entertainment every night. We went once! The food was basic and entertainment is the same every night and not very good.

Traders is always a great destination for cocktails and good food. One can have cocktails by the bar without needing to have dinner. Cocktails are very strong but delicious. Be ready to take a taxi home. Pricing is not cheap, but is worth it as...More
