Yes the previous traveler is on point. The stairs are actually quite steep in the 2 other buildings. There are no chairs, umbrella or lifeguards at the nearby beaches and the stuff is quite rough.

I would really avoid it as the rooms are tired and old. Suggest you try La Valencia instead.

No. Some rooms have a terrace though. For example, if you get a suite you may have access to a garden terrace outside your door.
