The staff from the reception, the housekeeping, and servers are enthusiastic, polite and exude in abundance old world manners. This hotel attracts young people usually with older family members. It is a cross between new generation and older generations finding a common location to enjoy each other. The enthusiasm is catchy, and you may feel different in how you feel about yourself. There is an upbeat mood, the lobby is full of large Samson pillars and bellowing curtains. Our room was really cozy to be in but unfortunately the windows were pelleted with dung from birds, but we received a memo from the front desk that the windows would be cleaned the next day and they were. We had wonderful views of the beach thereafter. The pool is shaded most of the time and also reserved for the limited sunny locations. There is a secured room key lock on the back entrance to the pool so you can walk the broadwalk and the beach. The food for breakfast is good and our lunch was even better. Our bathroom was small but it has all that is needed but only one person can be in there at a time.The driveway into the hotel entrance is very small but it functions. The doormen and the car valets were not in attendance upon our arrival and we had to locate someone to get our luggage and take care of the car for parking. The pool had people who worked and then people who worked there but chated with other staff members for extensive periods of time. Felt as though we had to interrupt them to get towels or help.
