3/5 Okay

Traveled with group
Disliked: Amenities
Nothing special for the money, not close to much. No sofa or chairs to sit on although the room was big enough. Couldn't even get a bottle opener in the lobby. No coffee maker or ironing board in the room, just a steamer .The bathroom was fine but could have used a hook somewhere to hang up a robe because there isn't really a closet

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
CLEAN, so so clean. Well-lit and had very smart devices in the room like a de-fogging and light-up makeup mirror. Air conditioning worked, shower was hot & adjustable, beds comfortable. Great place to get a lot of work done in the room, on the patio, or at a desk and then for a 3-5 minute stroll to get coffee &/or dinner. Five minutes from the beach & beautiful views. Best hotel I’ve been at in a long time.
