Most hotels are generally the same, but this one went beyond our expectations.
The staff are warm and welcoming right from the start. It doesn't matter who's on shift, everyone is super friendly, full of information and can help you out in any way that you need.
We were offered a Duluxe Room or a Standard upon arrival. I honestly liked the Standard room more. It is spacious and well set up. The balcony is large with a table and chairs, amazing view of the city and mountains. Everything was in working order. One night we did need a light bulb changed. Even in the middle of the night, they came and fixed it for us.
The location is nice, with a fine selection and range of restaurants to choose from right outside of the door. There is a public beach nearby, but very conservative. The hotel can easily arrange other beach trips for you for a reasonable price.
The breakfast buffet in the morning was about average. There was enough of a selection but felt like it could be polished.
All in all, great hotel to stay in. Would definitely stay here again. Oh, and good price!
