The location of the hotel is good close to business places (if you are on business) or shopping areas (if you are in town for shopping). The service is good and the food caters for all types of eaters.

So I have stayed here several times, the hotel is located centrally to a few restaurants and nightlife, but don't expect consistency. The hotel didn't have hot water had to call and then change rooms. We had the shuttle drop us off at the mall and told us they would pick us up 2 hours later, shuttle never showed and... More

I've been there with my wife for one week.It is a touristic hotel. I was surprised with the many different restaurants. We've visited different restaurants every day! Great breakfast within the major restaurant. The swimming pool is good and rather big. Sun beds and pool bar are available. They have free parking. City center is rather close.

I stayed at the Gulf Hotel from 8/4-8/11 and could not have been happier with my choice. Every single staff member that I encountered was exceedingly helpful, friendly, and courteous. I arrived a day prior to my husband (and left a day after him) and never once felt unsafe as a female alone there. The room was beautiful (although the... More

I intended to stay at the hotel for a long term stay. However, in terms of service and staff attitude this is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. The hotel treats guests with the attitude that they are doing you a favor by allowing you stay there. The front desk was extremely rude. I stayed in an exec... More
