The following are excerpts from


“Often in accessible rooms we need to rearrange the furniture to allow enough room for manoeuvring the wheelchair but not at Reef View. There is plenty of space.
“The room hasn’t lost any features to make it so spacious. There’s lounge chairs, a desk, flat-screen TV, mini-bar, tea & coffee making facilities and all the crockery at a lowered level.
“The room even has the option of an interconnecting room, making it more versatile for families or for someone travelling with a personal assistant/carer.
“I know many of our readers need to travel with a hoist for transfers so when I opened the wardrobe and found one provided, by the hotel in the room, I was delighted. This will make it easier for so many travellers with mobility restrictions.
“The safe, iron and clothes rack are all lowered to wheelchair height.”


“Like the bedroom, the bathroom is large and well appointed for easy access.
“The toilet has grab rails on either side which lift out of the way for transferring from a wheelchair. There’s room on either side of the toilet for transferring.
“The sink has room underneath for wheelchair access, is height adjustable and all taps are lever taps.
“The shower chair is moveable and also has grab rails that lift out of the way for easy transfer. The seat is also height adjustable and there’s a hand-held shower.”
“Hotel doors are heavy and often prove difficult for people with weakness in their hands or for wheelchair users. We were therefore impressed to find a button inside the apartment which operated the door.
“The balcony has a step-free entrance and offers glimpses of the reef and ocean.”
