The location of this hotel is great. It is right on the esplanade opposite the lagoon. You can walk everywhere so it is great if you don't have a car.
The front desk is 24 hours. The service is fine, but nothing special.
The pros are that the room was clean and a good size for only being the hotel room. The bed and pillow were both comfortable. The is a balcony, and even if you don't pay for an ocean view you still get a view of the mountains. The hotel is safe with good security.
The cons are that is you stay less than an week and want fresh towels, you have to pay extra. Also, in our room there wasn't a remote for the air conditioning, it was on when the balcony doors were closed and off when they were open. There was no way to make it a bit warmer at night.
I would stay here again.
