Overall the hotel is average, but has a very nice stretch of beach just in front, food is good and not too pricy. Other than that nothing fancy. Rooms do require renovation despite being comfortable. Sleeping quality id good, internet in the room was not working well but the view is great and sitting at the balcony is very relaxing....

There was some really nice people in the reception. The parking is ovepriced but there was always enough parking spots at the nearby streets. Dangerous ? who cares, it was a rented car. Nice swimming pool. The beach was wonderful. Nice restaurants and shopping centers nearby.
