Maximo Soba was the front desk clerk when we checked in late after a long travel day. He provided us with amazing customer service and made sure that we were comfortable and able to have a good nights rest.

The hotel is definitely in a great location. It's also really busy in the afternoon-evening with live music and ladies dancing on bars. The food is mediocre. The staff was pleasant and the room was small but comfortable. The rooftop is also a great amenity...nothing beats swimming and people watching. My mother stayed with me and although they didn't have... More

The best part of this hotel is the location. Right across the beach and as soon as you walk outside you are swept up in the liveliness of it all. Rooms are nothing fancy.
