The first impression was of an anonymous place:very little information from the receptionist, who "froze"on my credit card an additional Usd 100 for each day without any prior explanation ("It's the hotel policy!").Customers are supposed to know. The porter who took our luggage to the 5th floor was more friendly, explained us a lot and noticed that the third bed was missing (shouldn't they get the room ready in advance?).
The location is nice, so was our suite on the 5th floor (freezing air conditioning outside elevators: turn it down, pls!). Long and beautiful beach a few steps from the pool, where they rent you an umbrella for Usd 25 but around 5.15- 5.30 pm beach staff rush to take cushions etc away because they close at 6 sharp (you are welcome to stay after that on your bare sunbed or chair). They have no half-day rate for the beach,so if you go at 2 or 3 pm you pay the whole amount.
Cleaning of room is very late ( in the afternoon).It may be a problem if you have an afternoon rest.
There are no shops or restaurants nearby, you have to drive downtown, no walking distance from anywhere.
Food at the restaurant and pool bar is fair, nothing exceptional. Impossible to find a sunbed at the pool, all taken with towels until sunset.Plenty of free parking inside and a complimentary trolley on request from the hotel downtown from noon to 10 pm (last journey back).
I would recommend it for the position right on the beach.
