I loved this place.
The check in was swift, courteous and accommodating of our early arrival. The staff are all friendly and happy to help with directions, maps etc. Although the hotel is not central to the town or beach, it's not too far away and there's a shopping mall opposite with some decent restaurants, cafes etc too.
The rooms are like a visit back in time (in a good way) to about 1970. Their style is dated and features awesome historical touches like an entire mirror wall, floor to ceiling tiling in the bathrooms, retro patio furniture and so on. But it's all really well kept, clean and carefully maintained, so unless you are someone who demands up-to-date fashionable décor, then this is a great place to stay. There's complimentary fruit, water and Wi-Fi too.
We enjoyed staying here and would definitely book again.
