This hotel may look like a monstrosity to its neighbours but once inside it is actually quite comfortable and has good views. On rainy days (ie: most days) the hot pools offer a good place to warm up. The main pool is even swimmable unlike the one at Nayara. Also the rooms are brighter and generally functional except for a shortage of hooks to hang clothes on.
The meals at the restaurant were quite good and reasonably priced.
You won't fall in love with this place but overall we found it quite practical as a base from which to explore the area.
