After a delay checking in - you really can’t access until 4.00 and the receptionist was extremely grumpy in reiterating that - we had no complaints about the room which slept two adults and two teenagers comfortably.
Pool was ok - a bit cloudy but refreshing in the hot sun and plenty of loungers. View was mainly of the golf course to be fair, but the sunset was indeed spectacular.
HOWEVER, while the breakfast was tasty, varied and filling, EVERY SINGLE CUP, PLATE, BOWL AND ALL THE CUTLERY WAS DISPOSABLE PLASTIC OR CARD!!!! Likewise the cups in the lobby and the rooms. Coming from the UK where we are trying to minimise single-use plastic, this was sickening! Come on Best Western - step up and take some responsibility! less

Dear crazyboys24: Thank you for your comments regarding our disposable breakfast utensils and plates. We do so to save the fresh water in our environment. Only 3% of earth total water is fresh water. It is even more precious for us desert dwellers. We do not want to introduce harsh dish chemicals into our underground aquifers as water pollution would be irreversible as well and even worse for human life existence in the area. The drinking water in Page area is still pure, so we are able to drink our local water from tap unlike most, if not all, places in Europe and other parts of the world. Thank you for your comments, but advising hotels to use dishwashing chemicals may not be the best recommendation. Thank you.
