Lovely stay. Will come back. Had a step to and out of the bathroom which was dangerous if you didn’t see the step! Pool and gym were perfect 👍 close to everything. If you cruises it’s the perfect spot to stay as it’s only 5 mins from boarding dock.

The property was so well located right next to the water and the restaurant areas across the road from the casino and a short stroll into the CBD, the staff were amazing and so welcoming
