Consist of one 5 stores building. There is one additional structure but its not clear whether it is the same hotel. We spent here one week.
The advantages. Nice green comfortable territory. The Hotel staff is bery mice. The Hotel locates right by the sea. Free chaise lounges. There is a cafe on the beach. The hotel offers different entertainments for children and adults( banana boat, water scooter, parachuting, water chute, 2swimming pools with a basket and a spot for volleyball. Clean beach and territory. Breakfast is always the same, same meals but not bad. They have inside and outside dining area. There is a store on the first floor.
Disadvantages: our standard room was on the 5th floor in the very end of the corridor. And it took long time to go from / to the elevator. There are only two elevators right in the middle of Hotel, so don't take distant rooms. The room was small. Our travel agent booked a room with one double bed, but they gave us two single beds. The bathroom is small and not fresh. The towels are never clean ( they are laundered but have different spots on). We were warned that there us one pay TV channel which is rather expensive, so we never watched the TV, but witnessed some Korean Guy had a very bad argument with the receptionist about the charge for that TV channel. There is wifi only in lobby, but it is being collapsed constantly, no wifi in the rooms (at least on the 5th floor there wasn't wifi). The hotel is distanced from the center so to get to the Garapan center you should go either by a scheduled free bus or taxi( that is rather expencive 10 min road is about $15 or you can always rent a car. The sea bottom is not sandy all through, there is a sea grass almost along all swimming territory.
Summary: the hotel is not bad, but I Will not come back to it.
