This is a nice hotel in a convenient location. The amenities are good. They have a great pool and the have a good schedule of things to do. If you have children that love a good pool, this might be a great hotel for you.
The property has a good overall positive energy about it. The staff is nice and warm. The knock I have on the hotel is that is feels a little aged and needs some refurbishing. The rooms are large, but the bathroom area needs freshened up in order to be a 4 or 5 star hotel. It's acceptable, but will in no way wow you. The safe is an example of what needs modernized. At the front desk, they give you a key and the locking mechanism for the safe. No electronic safe here. It works, it's just not updated. The same can be said for the shower/tub area.
The hotel is right on the beach which is very nice as well.
Overall, it's a nice hotel & I got a very good rate on it as well....less than $100 US per night. Based on location, rate, and the staff, I would recommend the hotel.
