Hotel on the beach
My wife and I chose to stay at Hotel Kences for 3 nights in February as it is an ITC managed hotel. We expected it to be of the same standard of an ITC property but it definitely wasn't luxurious at all. The entrance foyer was grand enough with it's 2 storey high walls clad in granite. Check in was efficient and quick. We had read a lot of bad reviews about the service in the restaurant but didn't experience that at all. Even though we only ordered a la carte we got our food within 30 minutes which was fine. Communication with the staff is a bit of a problem with most of them not being fluent in English. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was ok. The gardens were lush and well maintained. There were ducks, turkeys, hens, chicken guinea fowl roaming about and a couple of rabbits in a cage. The hotel has a gym and a play area for kids. The approach to the beach side villas was terrible. The cottages are built close to the compound wall and the front of the cottage reminded me of a cheap PWD construction. However, the inside was pleasant enough with granite floors and modern fixtures. The cottage is quite small compared to other hotels like Fisherman's cove and Radisson. The best part of the cottage was that it has a fairly large outdoor seating area and the sea is a few steps away (No 5007).The basin is outside the bathroom which was a totally putting off. Housekeeping needed to be reminded everyday to clean the rooms. Towels were stained.
