Arrived and made our way to hotel. Door was locked so we had to knock. It was high tide when we arrived so had to stand off to side of door because of water. Operator came to door and told us to ring bell instead, I said cd not find bell, so she kinda made a show of saying its right here - it was hidden as nose of lion face but with having walkway under water was hard to get there without getting wet. Operator was a bit cold and almost seemed like she was not happy we were there. Had to have plank put down over water so we could enter hotel. Maybe those instructions were in our reservation but must have missed them. Got settled in. TV in first room very small. Bathroom window opened onto walkway so people could see in when lights were on. But room was clean and beds were comfy. We moved next day to a different room - again clean and comfy and much bigger TV. Window opened to court yard and we could hear opera at night (nice touch). Very quiet place. Operator became more friendly as week went on. She helped book a water taxi back to airport for us. Breakfast was very good and dining room was nice and we met some nice people there. If you want nice and simple place this would fit the bill.
