Hotel room was small but clean and did include great breakfast. Close to beaches and short ride by cab to city center. Clean and staff was very accommodating. Next door to Hilton which had ATM machine. Also included light dinner.

The place is very nicely located, the staff very friendly and the room was spacious and clean. The decor could use some love, but the bed was vey comfortable, a nice flatscreen TV and I had a nice big bathroom.
