I was a bit apprehensive about staying at this hotel based on previous reviews, but my fears would prove to be unfounded.
The room was adequate - clean beds, properly-stocked and clean bathroom, refrigerator, safe ($3/day), old CRT television with cable TV, functional air-conditioning, amazing poolside/seaside view. Internet access is NOT wireless, and costs $11 a day. Yes, the carpets are a bit worn and have a few stains, but that's the only thing I would fault. The infinity pool was attractive and clean, and it's about 50 leisurely steps down a stable walkway to reach the beach - nothing to gripe about. The sand if powder white, although there is a bit of moss in some sections of the generally clear waters.
The hotel's staff is generally courteous and accommodating, although I did not see any distinct concierge service.
The breakfast buffet was repetitive - it seems there were only two menu sets they were alternating. Also, the hotel bar's last call is 12 midnight, and they do not serve drinks in the lobby by 11:30PM, either. It's a bit annoying.
The hotel's location, though, is fantastic. It's right in the heart of the shopping district. Immediately across it is a JP Superstore; all within a stone's throw are the duty free shop and various designer shops, as well as simple convenience stores. Also in the immediate area are numerous restaurants that can fit your budget - from hassle-free fast food to fine dining.
Considering all of that, unless you're looking for something particularly fancy, this hotel gives a fantastic bang for the buck.
