Friendly staff. Unfortunately filthy floors during the whole week. Bedlinnen and towels were changed but no other cleaning. We were disappointed as we had better service when we have stayed there before.

We stayed at the hotel for 1 night. Checked in at 9PM. Service was good and the rooms were clean. We were aloud a 12PM at no extra cost, which was great. The front desk agent advised us that there was free coffee in the morning, but we never got round to it. Thanks

Very nice hotel, recently renovated, the staff is very caring about their customers. You're at about a 3 minutes walk from the beach, which is clean and not too crowded. You have a a small kitchen in your room which is convenient if you do not want to eat at a restaurant three times a day. Highly recommend!

I booked a room for 2 days, upon arrival the receptionist was very pleasant. The room was comfortable for the arrival. The following day I left with my brother for his hospital treatment and returned at 8 pm to find the room not cleaned and beds not done. No toilet paper. I requested a full service before I left ,...

Hotel was very clean. Furnishings were nice. Can use the parking for the other hotels owned by the same company. Near the beach. Front desk staff was very nice and accommodating. Pool looked refreshing, although we didn't have time to use it. Walked to the beach instead.

This hotel has ultra-modern furnishings (lots of white) and seemed to be a place run by/for "hip" travelers. We had a great corner room on the second floor with a living/dining area and full kitchen. We were only there one night, but thought it would have been a great place to stay for a week's vacation. Just be aware that... More

I did not enjoy this hotel. The front desk people were ok but that´s that. Parking is PAID. Which is odd considering the property has a lot of space to park. Room is ok but tiny. Also the pool was noisy.
