  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

How can you miss it being right there on the beach it is a beautiful hotel with a nice restaurant bar attached

Stayed 1 night in May 2020


  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The only good thing about the property was the location. We travel several times a year and this place is wayyyyy overpriced for what you get. Listing said they had a heated pool. It was definitely not heated, rather absolutely freezing. The rooms were dirty and worn. We were kept awake by a room two floors above us having a party. Complained to the front desk and it took them over 30 minutes to respond. One of the elevators was completely out of order. The other elevator got stuck multiple times over the couple days we were there. Could feel the springs coming up through the mattress. The air conditioner leaked and sounded like a freight train. The “gym” is an embarrassment. All around unpleasant experience. We will not be back.
