Hotel above extensive shopping centre.

We stayed at hotel and visited Lego land . The hotel was good perhaps a bit dated . Access to the waterpark was a bonus with kids. Being above a massive shopping centre was also a bonus. Staff were helpful and curtious.

Not worth the money

Poor in every aspect. No toaster no microwave, was forced to eat out most nights. Described a a self contained apartment but far from it. Staff were helpful but had a limited capacity to work with.

Room in timbuktu?

Pros: None
Location: KSL is a huge development with a mall, with three tower blocks. The residence rooms were at one of the residential tower.
The impression when booking was of a room at nice Hotel and resort. however its pics were not relevant to what we ended with. we ended with a 'esplanade residence room which was at another location, of a Mall complex with no easy access back to hotel nor hotel housekeeping or room services. The checkin was a long walk to spartan reception and and access to rooms were via a carpark lift lobby. You never know that u were at a hotel nor feel of hotel security. No room services, and free wifi was only available on this ground floor reception. As mentioned, dimly lit, reception was just a few tables to check in , nothing else... n hence no reason to even venture there. Room Toilet has one led bulb and was completely in black ceramic titles. So do not try to see your face in the mirror nor a get good scrub. When taking a shower, the whole bathroom floor was flooded each time as there was no shower curtains. if you had curtains, you will be in be taking a shower in the dark. We were very concerned with slipping and falling from the wet and black floor. These studio rooms should be marketed clearly as a 3star motel. To be fair the room was clean and had a fridge and cooking facilities. At that price we paid, I should have booked a newer Holiday Villa room with proper hotel services and facilities.
