I did not like the fact that the desk chair was broken, the desk had a glass top making using a mouse difficult, the balcony was smaller than expected and almost unusable. The service was good though. However, we will not be going there again. The room and all were not as expected, especially for the price. We even left one day early.

Great location on the beach but the building itself is very old and desperately needs to be gutted and renovated.

This hotel is NOT a family friendly. The area is not safe. Bars and police all over the streets. Beach is not great. Sand is black and dirty. We will never stay there again. For that price per night it is unaccessible what they ofer.
