Buen servicio. Le hace falta mejoras en las habitaciones y más limpieza. Falta de iluminación y sellado de puertas en la parte de abajo para evitar plagas. La parte exterior es hermosa y placentera.

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
No one should stay at this hotel, despite the fact that the very kind manager went out of her way to make things right for us and, after an initial frustration and complaint, staff were very helpful. It's located next to a shuttered amusement park and a technical school teaching welding. No view of the sea or access; no place to go on foot, no food or drinks available on site. Safety is an issue -- locks are old and there is no security. The pictures show that it could be a lovely location, but it has not been maintained and facilities are outdated. I wish we had gone to the Holiday Inn a short distance away.
