8.0 Excellent
Pros: Neo+ was fine for a 2 night stay. It’s only 3 years old, so I was surprised at how well worn the room was, but it was pretty clean. Breakfast was ok - mostly Asian with an egg station and toaster.
Cons: The aircon leaked all over the floor on my first night but was ok the second. WiFi didn’t work well at all. Bathroom was quite sparse - could have done with a couple of small towels and a hair dryer. The big negative for me was the location - not the best of locations for a visitor, and quite a long way from anything. Down by the water is far nicer.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The hotel and facilities
Cons: Can be better if the check in process is faster and smother
5.0 Okay
Pros: Rooms were spacious
Cons: Very difficult to communicate, all staff had a poor understanding of English. Area not good for tourists,prices differ in lounge bar and pool bar(much dearer pool bar.) You pay a service charge on each bill and the service is not good. You can't book any drinks or meals to your room unless you pay a deposit (even though we had paid for rooms on arrival. ) Unless you are on business and need to be in this area I would not recommend this hotel.

7.0 Good
Pros: This was a great 6-nights stay in a nice hotel with great views and walking areas nearby. - Breakfast was very delicious with a large variety. - All staff personnel was very nice and friendly. - The room was spacious, the bed was comfortable, sleeping quality was very good (though extra furniture was not comfortable at all). - Location is very central, will mall, supermarket and some restaurants in a walking distance, and more malls being built. - WiFi connection was stable, but slow by international standards (1-2mb/s), still good for Indonesia. - Gym is very well equipped. After embarrassing and poorly equipped gym in Swiss Belhotel Makassar I was expecting the same, but this one was great. The only downside - the A/C in gym was always off, and I could not figure out how to turn it on. I guess people don't use it often for some reason.
Cons: We stayed in "Executive Queen" room, and we were expecting better facilities, than in regular double room. However, there were quite a lot of issues with a room: - The bathtub was leaking. After you take a shower, in next hour some of water will flood on the floor, making bathroom uncomfortable to use. - Ventilation in bathroom is either not working or not existing. The water doesn't dry up, so if you leave the bathroom closed after taking a shower, it will feel and smell like jungle. - You can't make the bathroom door not closing :). We ended up placing trashbins in a doorway to fix the door being opened. But all of this is ridiculous. - Curtain holder was broken (though it was still holding somehow). - Water pressure was very low. - The extra furniture which goes in every executive queen room was very uncomfortable, and slightly in a bad condition. Chairs were not stable, and sofa had holes in it. We even thought to ask to bring regular chairs from restaurant or somewhere else :). - There was an ongoing construction works (as of March 2020), which was very loud sometimes. - The working place had only one electrical socket, and it was used by room's wifi router.
