Just returned from the HI, we asked for and got an Ocean View Room (6734), very nice room with a superb view, you can watch the infamous sunset each evening from your balcony prior to going out for dinner.
The HI has got a great location on the beach with shopping just across the street, together with some restaurants. The beach and pool areas are very clean, not sure about having to queue for a palapa for the next day though, there must be another way of doing it, but I guess the current system works and the number of people who return year after year must enjoy it all.
We only took breakfast once in Corals, a bit staff canteen feel to it and ate out each evening.
The public areas are quite pleasant, the lobby is ideal to escape the mighty mid day sun and do some people watching ! The few shops inside of the hotel cover quite a number of items required on holiday. I was disappointed with the casino, it is a part that perhaps missed out on the recent renovations or perhaps we had been spoiled by the Carnival Casino at the Renaissance on Curacao a few days earlier ?
All in all a typical HI property with nice staff, good location and blue skies as a bonus.More
