When checking in was provided with no info at all, I was handed my key and pointed to the direction of my room. Not told about beach access, breakfast, transport. Not helpful at all. Room was clean and great size

The rooms where modern and fresh. The roof pool was really small, I recommend the sister hotels pool instead! The location is ok, a small walk to the beach. Though you have to pay for the sun umbrella

Conveniently located within walking distance from the night life. Nice rooms, ask for a room with a couch if traveling as a part of party of three as there is only one queen bed. Great place for people who like to party.

I expected a 3.5-4 star hotel but the hotel was more a 2.5-3 star. Pool should not be advertised as a pool. Pleasant staff. Breakfast wasn't varied. There was nothing special about the hotel. I would not recommend

I asked for am early check in before arrival, but when I was at the hotel they told that was made a cancelation of it. As a consequence i had no Access to my room after 7 flying hours at 6 am and had to wait until 16h00 for it. It was a terrible experience.

The room was very nice with exception of the bathroom...the tile shower was old and really needs to be redone. The shower door wouldn't even shut... But other than that... The room was great... Had a modern feel and was clean.... More

This hotel is nowhere near 4 star hotel, when you come in there is no lobby, no valet parking as states on their site, you can park cross the street for $20-30 a day, it's very small property, regular suits are small and uncomfortable, I dono what genius designed those suits but it's lacking basics that even 3 star hotel...
