The sheets do not fit the bed.Move a little and the sheets are all over the bed. The furniture,if you want to call it that,has seen better days. On this trip,the room...

Stayed at this hotel as it was close to the airport. Overall cost x benefit is not worth it and there might be other hotels close to the airport or in the area that have a better value. The room was okay, clean but tired looking. Same for the pool and other areas of the hotel. Food options were not...

What an amazing hotel. Located just about 10 minutes from the airport, this was a hidden jewel. I had to come with our family for a wedding that was going to be there, and it was phenomenal. We were so glad that we stayed at the hotel, where everything was available and made so much easier our time.

Unfortunately I am not able to rate this hotel at zero. To be really honest, this is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at (and I have some experience). 15 minutes after having joined our room we were moved to another room because of the following reasons: - air conditioning could not be stopped and our room was flooded;...

I was very disappointed with the room. Everything seems old and dilapidated. Bathroom had only shower and not a bath. Room had no coffee and kettle in the room. We had w-ifi in the room but internet connection was up and down. I felt that price was far too high for what one gets. Breakfast is buffet style.I enjoyed different...

Booked a two day stay here after a friend's indication. This was perfect for a peaceful time as I didn't want to be in town. PLUS it's close to the airport! At the very spacious entrance, reception staff was friendly and helpful. Check in was swift. You receive a wristband that you're meant to keep during your stay (there are...

I was there for a conference. The hotel is nice, directly at the beach, not far way from the airport. Food was reasonable but its recommended to have dinner outside the resoirt. Disadvantages: when going somewhere there is not much in the surrounding.

Bad service, bad food, expensive, bad breakfast, old, durty, terrible for someone traveling on business, pretencious, disorganized. I did find a cockroach in the. Bathroom. Traumatic experience... I think that this kind hotel couldn't receive people on business.

We came for work, and it was winter, but there were still families there to enjoy the resort. The conference rooms were fine for discussions, with air conditioning moderating the temperature, but no Wi-Fi. They had plenty of water and coffee available. The breakfast was diverse and local, which we appreciated. As for the rooms, I definitely could have used...

Although locared with an ocean view the beach outside the hotel is a public beach. The swimming pool was large with a comfortable temperature. The location to obtain towels closed apparently at 3::00 PM a crazy hour to close. I only recommend a room on the 5th floor to limit the noise from the swimming pool area. The room was...
