Could not fault this hotel. The staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough for you. It was spotless they never stopped cleaning. Only one fault I would say was allowing people to smoke in the. Pool by the bar, could contaminate water and not very pleasant for people who don't

"you should not be in your room other than to sleep"
"All rooms are of a good size and as there are only 2 floors, the level makes little difference nor are the views special"
"top floor, the 2000 rooms"
"Rooms closest to the ocean are the quietest. Rooms near the front can hear the live entertainment at night."
"Get a top floor room and utilise the room service it's quick no more than 20 minutes wait"
