Very sad -------- it used to be amazing when it was run by Sun International but unfortunatly no more.



At the Forest Suites Hotel I enjoyed a haven of peace and tranquility. I enjoyed my spacious and luxurious hotel room, I feel like it was designed to harmonize in tone.

I definately enjoyed a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere one which I will remember forever.
