On the whole we loved our stay, the saddest part was that our fold out bed was shocking, the actual canvas on the metal frame is torn and Re stitched but there was no support , the mattress was so thin that my child had to sleep on the floor which is disgusting , this lead to almost no sleep all night for all of us. The fold out is supposed to accommodate 2, it didn’t even accommodate 1 child. In the morning while moving the mattress back we noticed how filthy the mattress was , drink stains and the edges of the mattress were brown. Then we noticed the main bedroom duvet inner was filthy. Bathroom was moldy. And our tv remote didn’t work. Hairdryer plug didn’t fit any of the plug points

Dear Paradise00805994071 Thank you for choosing to use the President Hotel as your place of home whilst visiting our city. I have read your survey and must admit it saddened me. Please be assured that it is not the standard in which we pride ourselves, and I am sure what you are accustomed to. Your comments have therefore been distributed to the entire team here and will be addressed accordingly and measures are being put into place to ensure that we lift the bar once more. We are constantly aiming to ensure that our guests experience the very finest service and standards at the President Hotel and with this in mind please accept my sincere apologies on behalf of my team and I. Kind regards Desmond GM

We stayed at President Hotel for our wedding anniversary and the least I can say that the level of support we received was marvelous. We had a double room with ocean view then we got upgraded to a one bedroom apartment. I would love to thank the Travel Desk team especially Mr. Jamil who took an extra step and arranged a wonderful anniversary surprise which my life loved and it made our stay experience much better. Jamil also made sure to arrange all our excursions with better discounts and gave us all the tips to go around the city without any worries. We love the place and we would definitely stay here again in our next visits.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay however if I do come back will not go for the mountain view room. I booked two rooms, one montain view and one seaview. Also liked the fact that even though one can only book in 2pm you have the choice of enjoying the pool etc

Our first stay at a hotel and we had a great experience. We loved our room, the staff. The pool and play area made it fun for the children aswell. Our room was excellent with the pool and seaview. We will definitely stay here again.

Poor service from most of the staff. I experienced problems from day 1 of my stay till the last day. I did not get any joy with switchboard, room service, house keeping and restaurant. Management still has not responded to my complaint email. No acknowledgement of receipt and no response, I guess it their culture

as long as you pay with a credit card you will be covered, but maybe not through an email, go direct to the website to pay, never click a link in an email if you are even slightly unsure.

It's best to check with the hotel prior as not all hotel's offer day room stays. I'm sure it would still be a private room though.
