Park Street Hotel has good big rooms. Large comfortable bed, sofa, desk, large bathroom with rain shower and bath. Good linen etc gives this a high grade on comfort.
Apparently the two suites in the original Dutch house (where reception etc is) are even better.
The pool is refreshing and large enough to do some lengths, and the bar area around the pool is good. Good snacks, good drinks, friendly people. It's got a nice atmosphere in the afternoon, but doesn't get overly lively.
I'd heartily recommend this hotel with one caveat. At the time of our stay we had the feeling that it was time for some "touch-ups", a fresh coat of paint etc.
The location is good near some interesting sights and close to good restaurants.
