Overall good staying at this hotel was pleasant. No problems with cleanliness or hospitality. Everyone was friendly and willing to offer assistance when asked. Food service by pool was slow. Location was convenient. Short taxi ride to old city. The beach was just OK. Ladies urging to give massages were persistent and very annoying.
