I stayed at the this hotel for one day and one night on work and had quite a pleasant stay. The property is well maintained and the lobby is very beautiful and charming. Check in was smooth with everyone from the guards to the luggage helpers as well the rest of the staff being very courteous and welcoming.
The ambience in the lobby has a warm and old world charm to it. However the rooms are more modern. I had a king size bed in my room. Decor is minimalistic and the room was quite spacious. The linen was clean and white. The bathroom was decent as well. Overall the room was adequate for my needs.
I dined at the coffee shop and the food was okay, not great. For the rates they charge, the food could taste a lot better. The selection wasn't too bad but they really need to improve the taste of the dishes they serve. Overall the service is very good, wait staff was attentive and took good care of us.
The beach is just a stone's throw from the property. You will need to cross the main road to get to the beach. The surrounding area is quite busy and lively with plenty of people milling around. However, once you are in the hotel, it's very tranquil.
