I have stayed here regularly over the last 10 years, and am sad to see this hotel slowly fading.
The location is great, and the facilities good, especially the executive club floor (now called Club Millesime) with it's dedicated club lounge with free drinks and snacks, and a quiet breakfast location (albeit with a limited selection - for a full buffet you need to go down to the main restaurant).
Rooms with an ocean view are limited, but worth searching out as the views per are nice. The rooms are average size, and well equipped.
The problem is that things start to be unreliable. In the last stay there was a problem with the AC on the executive floor, giving a smell of bad drains, to the extent that the club lounge was unusable. Generally there was a tired and damp smell through the common areas, covered up with liberal use of air freshener spray.
Nevertheless, I like the hotel and will return. I just hope they take the time for a bit of refurbishment soon.
