We spent two nights at this hotel for a weekend SCUBA diving trip. The hotel is clean and the desk staff was friendly and helpful. There are plenty of restaurants and shopping options nearby. The bridge over to the beach area is also not that far away.
The room (#320) was clean, but there was evidence of past water damage in the ceiling of the bathroom (poping paint on the wall and rust on drop ceiling structure). The bed was a little soft for my liking, but that is personal preference.
The public areas were clean. Breakfast was put out early, so even though they stated a 7am start time, it was already out and available when we left at 5:30am both days.
Just be clear that this hotel is not on the beach. You must drive to the beach area from this hotel.
