Stayed here for 7 nights, we were upgraded, which was nice. Staff didn't communicate a lot and appeared to miss a smile, except for a young boy who tried to be of assistance at all times.
Rooms were basic and we had to ask for fresh towels as rooms were not serviced daily. We had a lovely view of part of the beach.
We moved rooms half way through our stay as the air-conditioner was very noisy. They had the service man come in at about 11pm at night to look at it. We were moved to what was meant to be a "better" room, however, I would consider it a "poorer" room. Access was via a stingy alleyway, past the staff's quarters. We would hate to think of what would happen during an emergency as it wasn't easy to get out. The bathroom flooded and they had to plunge the drain. We would have moved hotels, but due to it being the New Year period, there wasn't anything else available.
A breakfast dish (included in price) had to be ordered from a menu (consisting of about 5 items) and, many times, they mixed up the order or forgot about it. No apologies were ever given. We had to clear most of the tables ourselves when we arrived for breakfast, as they were usually still messy with other people's dishes.
They do have a cheap happy hour in the afternoon and the location is good, as it is right on the beach in Boat Station 3. This is good for anyone that likes to be close to the action, but just that distance to not be disturbed by any of it.
