We stayed here just for one night, so we didn't get to enjoy as much as I would have liked. The hotel rooms were fine - the one we stayed in had a little kitchen area, which would have been nice if we had stayed longer. The bathroom was tiny, but it had everything you needed. Overall, I would say you can tell it is older, but everything was clean and in working condition, so I would go back.
The pool looks like a lot of fun. They have a slide for the kids and they give you bands when you check in so nobody from outside the hotel can use the pool (keeps it from being crowded, although when we were there, it was pretty empty anyway). We didn't have time to play in the pool (beach won out), but it would have been great if you have a few kids. Instead, we went to the beach, which is right off the pool. Nice area, easy to walk to.
The only real negative I have is that smoking is allowed outside the rooms, and we were in the building where the room doors go to the outside. That meant if your neighbor was smoking on the balcony, you could smell it.
Overall, I would stay again - for the price we paid, it was a good deal. (Staff was friendly also.)
