Stayed at the slipway with my husband. They organize airport pickups for us. We were initially given a room that my husband did not like then they changed us to another one when we requested them to. Great ocean view. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They have a number of restaurants with good food and music. The location...

Fist the good part: the hotel slipway is excellently situated near shops, restaurants, and a vibrant waterfront. The sunrise over the harbor is beautiful. The restaurant staff was very helpful in setting up a large table at the last minute so that our group could meet with some local businessmen over breakfast. The rooms, however, leave much to be desired....

Stayed at the Slipway for 2 nights in august 2016. The staff was genuinly friendly, my room was fine directly facing the ocean and breakfast was OK.

Wonderful Hotel, a real hidden gem. I stayed in a suite for 9 months, very comfortable and clean. Fantastic staff and Lusinda the manager can't do enough to make your stay perfect. Lots of restaurants near by as well as the Slipway Souk which has some lovely shops and a good Supermarket

We stayed in Slipway for 3 nights early August, in the new part of the hotel. The hotel has all ingredients to be top of the bill. However, the ingredients are not mixed to a perfect cocktail. The building is new, but the finishing is simply not good. Materials used of low quality, bathrooms with wrong tiling and likewise finishing....

All that separates this hotel from being excellent is the lack of hot, even moderately warm, water for a shower. Running water for 20 minutes to get it warm is a non-starter, but besides that, this is a really nice hotel, with friendly staff, good service and a good breakfast. I'd stay again.
