This hotel is in the right location with great views. The food is good. The breakfast is included and there was a good choice. We had dinner in the restaurant on the first night and the food was very good, we'd recommend the tuna. However, there was no atmosphere or other guests in the restaurant and bar. The staff were fine, but lacked warmth and were fairly robotic.
We had originally booked a jungle room, but upon looking at the tiny, dark damp room close to the relatively busy road, we immediately decided to upgrade. The ocean view room that we ended up in had a lovely view and it was spacious. However, it wasn't very clean, had dated decor and it was seriously in need of a coat of paint, as well as new bed linen and towels. The bathroom was grubby with a chipped, wobbly sink. The air conditioning unit from next door, was directly outside our bedroom window and it was very loud at night even with the window closed.
The whole hotel needs to be better maintained and cleaned. It doesn't feel very loved. The staff go through the motions, but certainly don't create a hospitable atmosphere. For $110 a night for the ocean view room we expected more.
