Stayed here for six nights for a conference. I was "upgraded" to a beachfront room. I had stayed here a number of years ago in a higher level corner room which was spectacular. This stay was not so spectacular. The room was huge and had a very comfortable bed, good chairs, desk, table etc and a great balcony from which... More

I recently stayed at this hotel as we were there for a wedding. We had a newly refurbished room and it was lovely. There is a modern fold out sofa that is stylish and very comfortable. Comfy bed and pillows :-) Only thing I would say is that we had our baby with us but the bathroom didn't have a... More

Room was clean & tidy. In-Room Dining & Buffet Breakfast fantastic. Staff friendly and accommodating. Directly across from the beach. View fantastic. It was a bit cold for swimming but pool was crystal clear. Bed and pillows were a little uncomfortable.

Stayed here numerous times and really like it. The views of the ocean are awesome, especially on the higher floors. The rooms have recently been renovated and are much nicer than previously. They are pretty spacious and always clean. The bar has a nice ambience and drinks are priced alright. Didn't eat there this time but it's generally pretty good.... More

Stayed here recently for one night in one of the refurbished rooms. Room was well appointed and felt clean and comfortable. Bed was fantastic. Room service was good and fast. The lobby bar is a great place to get a drink. Would recommend staying here.

The location was great however the room and the hotel itself is so old, tired and dated, we were terribly disappointed and will not stay here again.

We stayed in an ocean view room on the 9th floor. The view was spectacular overlooking the ocean. I made a point of watching the gorgeous sunrise over the ocean from our balcony. The room itself was comfortable and modern. The bed was a bit soft for our liking and the shower a little dated but they are only minor... More
