I agree with lima5678 that this hotel is in dire need of a change of management. It has the basics to be a great beachfront property, but a lack of leadership and care undermines this. First, the positives: - the location right on the beach is beautiful, and we spent many happy hours in the sea. It is about a... More

They had trouble finding my reservation, limited hours for serving meals at the restaurant, limited options from the menu, pool small for all the people at the hotel. Playground needs maintenance urgently. A lot of flies at restaurant tables.
