Stayed here on business and was situated in a room on the 1st floor facing the highway. The rooms have floor to ceiling windows with Hunter shades. This still does not block out the sounds of truck and bus traffic that passes within 50 feet of the hotel front day and night.
As other raters have said, there is only one hotel tower, and the remainder are condo. The grounds are all concrete/graite/marble and the pools look nice but I did not get a chance to use them. The beach looked kind of desolate.
I used room service on arrival at 130am and it was prompt, good food and price. The free breakfast was more than adequate, and the restaurant and bar had friendly service and great prices.
This is a great hotel if you have business at the airport, have a layover, or are attending a conference at the conference centre nearby. No shopping around.
The room was modern with large screen TV, good a/c system, comfortable bed and nice washroom facility. On my second day the towels from day one, and bath mat were not replaced so I had to use day 1 hand towel and the extra bath towel (didn't notice until 5am). Te wifi works in the room but is better in the lobby bar, and it is FREE!
To sum up, for business, it is great...get a high levele room facing the beach and take some ear plugs.
