So easy to stay with this hotel. We were travelling in the middle of the night & needed shuttle transfers included with an airport hotel. The Gateway picked us up at the airport within minutes & then straight to the hotel. We were then given an upgrade to a beautiful room, so very clean & comfortable. Staff were lovely. Shame...

Probably not the best place to stay with a disabled person. Unfortunately for us, this is an excellent location to suit our needs. We have stayed here 4 times in the last 12 months but don't think I will stay again with my elderly mother. The first time we stayed was fantastic, so naturally booked again to be totally disappointed.*Reviewed...

The location is absolutely the perfect and the free shuttle to the airport is a godsend. The rooms are well appointed, clean and comfortable and the service friendly. The only let down is the amount of noise from people coming and going throughout the night along with the light that filters in from the edge of the curtain that doesn't...

We stayed here as a group of friends 3 adults and 3 kids. We checked in at different times and they happily picked up as required from the airport. A great service. The room was huge, warm, clean and the kitchenette was fantastic. Cannot fault the service we received.

Husband and i stayed here the night before our international early morning flight. We were warmly greeted on arrival with staff offering early morning wake up calls in case our alarms failed us and an early morning (free) shuttle was organised. Our room (522) was obviously recently modernised and we were extremely happy with the cleanliness, spaciousness and extremely comfortable...

The Airport Gateway is perfect for an overnight stay before an early flight or after a late arriving flight. It's very close to the airport and they provide a free airport shuttle. You can ring for the shuttle from the airport arrivals area. Rates are very reasonable and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The room had a kitchenette, but...

Very friendly staff. The room was clean and had everything that you would need for a short or long term stay. Wifi was great, especially as we had teenagers with us. Nothing was too much trouble, even a midnight call to reception for more toilet paper was met with a sense of humor and a knock at the door with...

Beautiful unit. Very comfortable, modern and spotless. Dinner was good. Staff all helpful. Convenient and quiet location and good to have the courtesy shuttle from the airport. Drivers friendly and helpful. Good choice. Can recommend.

The staff were lovely and made for a very easy checkin. The room was very outdated and in need of some severe updating. Unfortunately our room looked nothing like the photos, which was very disappointing. There are some nicer rooms in the resort so my advice is to double check which one you're signing up to before booking.
