The Fiesta Royale has smart rooms, efficient service and a good bar and restaurant, making it an ideal bet for business travellers and families. Its location, no more than 15 minutes from the airport, is superb. The rooms are large – choose between standard, executive suite or chalet – and all are kitted out with DSTV, free wireless, ample wardrobe space and a safe. A large breakfast buffet is also included. The hotel pool is on the small side, but a backdrop of Italian-style gardens makes it a picturesque and clean area for unwinding. All in all, it would pass as a reliable and well-run hotel anywhere in the world: the service is better than many of its competitors. Its Mansonia restaurant has a private dining area for groups and parties, and the bar and restaurant are also becoming very popular with non-residents, thanks to a menu of specialties.
