I reckon this hotel does not put strict restriction or penalty against smoking in smoke-free rooms. All rooms that I checked (3 rooms on the first night and another 1 on the next day) have reek of cigarette smoke. I have my room changed 3 times during my 4 nights stay. Totally unacceptable!

Within walking distance to the coastline. Good for runners that want to avoid city traffic. Hotel room was cool, but it felt like the hotel itself was not air conditioned. After a cold shower, I was still dripping sweat at the breakfast buffet. The gym opens at 6am. Not exactly great for jet lagged travelers that are up at 4am!
