Sad face IconDisliked: Amenities
No “breakfast” included while listEd as “good breakfast included”. Too far away from the beach, there is no way you can take “walking distance” to reach there. The room I got is 2 Premium queen beds with extra fee added. I asked for second or third floor view, but they told me such “Premium”rooms do not offer with that... I really not sure how they named it as “premium”. Also when I jump on my bed, the first thing I realize is it’s not clean. At least not got cleaned on the day I moved in, because I could see dust laying on top of the bed (though some white substance). Feeling really not comfortable with staying in the room
