We ate here and the food was good but very pricey. The service was good and staff polite. The alcoholic drinks are even pricier and there is no draught beers served in the bar or restaurant. Still would recommend a visit.More

When we booked to stay at the Rotana hotel Trader Vics was one of the reasons we chose the hotel due to having entertainment every night. We went once! The food was basic and entertainment is the same every night and not very good.More
