Ok, right off the bat, I was handed a "goody bag" with snacks and 2 bottles of water. Now I'm not saying this would make my decision on a hotel, but it certainly says something about how much this hotel cares about their guests. Breakfast included multiple hot options, in addition to the usual continental affair. AND there was a free happy hour at the pool with beer, hot dogs, and burgers.
Every member of staff I spoke to was friendly, professional, and helpful. The ones I didn't speak to smiled and said hello. I had an in depth conversation with the handy-man (there was something wrong with my door, it is an older hotel, and only a small inconvenience) who gave me great advice on local places to try. He suggested Monty's (among other places that unfortunately time would not permit) which I can recommend for that perfect cheesy touristy beach themed bar by the harbor feel which I admit I am quite fond of. I would definitely go again!
Anyway, apart from being a bit old, this hotel was excellent.
