I stayed here on business and this hotel is the bees knees. I can't comment on value for money as I don't know how much it was but it was a real nice stay and the buffet breakfast was excellent. The view onto the ocean was spectacular, the room large, the bathroom nice and in general a nice place to... More

Given a large room on the 9th floor first night but due to noise from air conditioning in the hall way all night I was changed without any issues the following day.

Excellent location, close to all attractions and local restaurant. Warm welcome from the reception and a very providing staff. Room was great and spacious. Breakfast was also great and had a great variety. Only slight concern was that the lobby was a bit crowded as it was quite small. Otherwise the visit was wonderful.
