When you step into the lobby of the Impala, you'll likely meet Roman manning the desk. He is the epitome of helpfulness, kindness and efficiency. He'll carry your bags, answer your every question and find you a taxi to take you to a recommended restaurant. Take advantage of his knowledge.
This lovingly renovated hotel is a testament to good taste. A small fortune has been spent on the beautiful tiling throughout the establishment. The rooms are cleanliness itself, the beds are divine and the bathrooms spacious with modern fittings. The breakfast and lounging area alongside the hotel is a shaded oasis of cool breezes and calming greenery.
Some TA reviewers have correctly commented on the sound spill over from close by week-end night clubs. As someone whose career has been in acoustics I have to say that it is almost impossible to insulate a building against nearby pounding bass music, which has a propensity to travel. We were in room 202 and it was not loud enough to keep us awake. We stayed on consecutive Saturday nights.
In the interest of truthfulness I should say that room 202 looks out onto a rather dingy alley, so we walked a block and looked at the beautiful people on the beach instead. We'll be back.
