I spent my honeymoon in this great hotel. The accommodation is great and the view from the balcony of our room is awesome. What is special about this hotel is the balcony of the rooms that are spacious and comfortable.

Radisson took over this property that was formerly a Sheraton. The hotel is old! Windows in the rooms are not sealing well, so you get a lot of noise. Baths are very tiny, could be an Ibis as well. Rooms are spacious and all have balconies. Beds are good. Wifi is a problem, sometimes fast then slow, and you keep... More

Excellent view of the Atlantic - just a short walk across the road to the beach. Pool facilities are a lovely way to spend the afternoon. The rooms are well appointed and spacious. A nice sized balcony on which to sit and look at the beach.

This hotel does not approach the basic service levels of up decent global hotel chain like Radisson. 1) do you want or need to use the internet for any reason whatsoever? Do not stay at the Radisson!

From start to finish you become very aware of the moral of the staff,it seems to be incredibly low. A smile or attempt at a hello is a rare sight. The staff on all levels struggle with basic English words(understandable perhaps for complex issues). The chamber maids are undertrained,understaffed and mediocre. The famous Smell is indeed awful, the entire hotel... More

I recently stayed in this hotel for two nights while attending a conference in another facility nearby. I was very disappointed for a hotel of this category.
