We arrived late at night and were pleasantly surprised to receive a free upgrade to a suite on the top floor with an ocean view. The room was very spacious with a balcony, king size bed, small fridge, flat screen TV, air con and tea/cofee making facilities. Bathroom was a little on a small side, but clean and basic toiletries were provided. The let down was lack of free WiFi (you can pay $6 for 5 hours of internet use if you have a laptop etc), breakfast was not included in the room price and the fact that the whole amount for the room had to be paid on the day of booking, with no refund available. The hotel is not quite in the town centre, 5 minutes to get there by car (it is 10min drive from the airport) - there is lots of free parking available in the surrounding streets if you come by car. They also provide a free shuttle bus to the centre - it leaves once every hours from the hotel, starting at 10AM. Staff were helpful and check in and check out were very quick.
