15. There's no arguing that the carpeting, bedspreads, etc., are new, but they could have spent a bit more time on the bathrooms (still showing some wear and tear), and although we requested Non Smoking rooms, you could tell by the smell that these were once smoking rooms.

24. My only critisism was, as I reported to the hotel, the smell of coconut oil was too strong (I know it is supposed to be tropical but it did get too much at times) luckily it was not in your rooms and only slightly in the corridors, it was very strong in reception and the casino but that was just a minor irritation.

38. Hotel has just had a full refurb you could smell the new paint, rooms are big and the most comfy beds ever, only draw back was lack of tea/coffee machine and a fridge would have come in useful we had to keep going to the ice machine in the corridor outside our room to keep our drinks cool, The location is good (south end of the strip) but beware when its hot like it was when we went ( 110 some days) it can be very tiring walking around and the temp didn't drop much at night but it gives you a chance to see what the other hotels have to offer, The food was pretty good at the hotel and starbucks came in useful for early morning cuppa.
