Nice Central Location
Posted Jan 16, 2017
I was looking for a cost-effective centralized place to sleep in between tours, and this hotel met that expectation.
Thinking I was "splurging" I upgraded to an ocean view room, which technically did have a view of the ocean but the room was very barebones. Two twin mattresses were pushed up against a queen-size headboard. Our bathroom contained only a tiny shower stall, and was a struggle to navigate even though I am of average height and weight. The shower curtain did not quite reach the edge of the stall, either, so the bathroom tile will end up getting pretty wet. There are no individual amenities like shampoo, soap or conditioner, only one large all-purpose soap dispenser. There is also no phone inside the room.
The staff is, however, very pleasant and are willing to assist with things you might need like calling for cabs, giving directions, providing extra towels, etc. Also, be aware of their "take-with-you" lunch policy. If you take any snack or fruit from their free continental breakfast for your travels, expect to pay about $10 USD. I didn't notice the sign inside the dining hall (only posted near an area where I didn't initially take any food) and when the breakfast attendant noticed a few cookies wrapped in a napkin, quickly pointed out the sign and vocalized his displeasure- incredibly embarassing for me.
Bring a power converter for your US electronic plugs, as they are not provided on site. I paid $50 for mine at the 24-hr convenience store behind the hotel.
