10/10 Exceptional

I love the architecture the design and the décor. The luxury of the rooms. The location wasn't smacked dead in the middle of stone town but it was not far. The staff was wonderful polite and accommodating. The view and the balcony were fabulous. I have to say of any improvements. Would be repairing the chains inside the rooms for door security. Telling your housekeeping to knock and ask if they can enter. What doesn't that all went well.

Nice and very accommodating staff. Very pleasant and friendly. The restaurant's food was very good and seasoned to perfection. The scenery and views of the ocean were beautiful. This hotel is less than 10 minutes from the airport.

10/10 Exceptional

The hotel building itself is architecturally beautiful, high ceilinged, open and wonderfully decorated. The tilinged floors and spacious, brightly painted walls and ceilings made one feel cool and comfortable, a lovely feature in a warm humid climate. The facilities, such as the gym, restaurant and spa were what one would expect from a five star hotel and were fully up to the quality standards one should expect, I'm happy to say. However, the real high point of our stay at the Mabinat was the staff, all of whom were friendly, courteous, competent and extremely helpful. We would return to this hotel for this one thing alone as they made our stay there all the more memorable and enjoyable.

Very nice place and good pool !
Nice hotel, good pool, lot's of space, next to beach (but not private), huge room and nice employees. Almost perfect except: no door but curtain next to shower and therefore all the water goes all over the bathroom, not all machines in the big gym work, air conditioning is not strong enough to make the room really cool!
