The staff was helpful for the most part.(Expect when my boyfriend left his sweater in the room after checking out and we couldn't... More

Is The Best Location In Town, Very Good Ambience For Honey Mooners, Very Nice Beach, Rooms Ok. It Is Expensive For What You Get. But The Most Concerning Thing Is The Staff, Because I Got Stolen $ 300 Bucks Out My New Wife´S Purse. Despite Of The Good Things I Would Never Go Back To This Hotel

- Lot of deferred maintenance in the building (painting, floors, stairs) - Small Rooms - Dirty Rooms - Rooms in very bad condition - Absolutely over priced. They charge rates of a 5 star hotel and that hotel is not more than 2.
