We recently stayed at this hotel as part of our honeymoon. The location of the hotel is great it looks out on to the ocean and is a short walk to the main shopping area & some nice restaurants. The facilities downstairs, pool, hot tub etc are beautiful and relaxing. Our room was very small & poky for two people with suitcases, the cleaning staff made quite a lot of noise cleaning the room next to ours one morning, the doors on the rooms are quite heavy and it seemed like every time a cleaner went into/out of the room the door just slammed shut (this happened quite a lot)! There is a beautiful roof top bar which we were informed stayed open until midnight however we found that it would be closed whenever staff decided, we came back to the hotel for a late drink one night and the bar was closed at 11:20pm...we were told that the bar has to close when the bar downstairs closes! As residents of the hotel I found this very disappointing. This is a great hotel and the art deco style is beautiful.
