The property has a good location. There are numerous repairs throughout the property that are not complete. During my stay as I was in the room, the maintenance drill a hole into my shower without notification and called to turn off the water. They started glueing pipes and the smell was too much and I asked to change rooms. it was my last day and I was trying to have a nap.

Absolutely the best!!! I went on a family trip, there was 14 of us including teens, elderly and children. The hotel is a couple blocks from the beach, we feel extremally safe walking back and forth even at night, we also found the buss station to go to the mall and the Cristo Redentor, dozens of stores, pharmacies, bars around the hotel. The staff is amazing the breakfast is excellent, the top pool is breathtaking. The only reason that I might not come back is because I love to try different hotels when I travel, but I always look for the reviews, so I really hope that this review helps your decision because you will not regret. THE BEST!!!!

Do not stay here. This hotel was rated excellent by other reviews but it is a scam. The entrance to the hotel looked immaculate but once inside it is a health and safety nightmare. First we ordered food in the restaurant and it was frozen in the middle, on entering the hotel it has giant holes in the ceiling, severe mould damage to the point it smells of mould in the rooms and it is on the ceilings and walls. Water leaks next to electrical cables. The bedding was covered in blood stains, the towels were dirty. We were forced to leave and are currently waiting on a refund. This hotel should be shut down or investigated

Nice hotel and great location. Breakfast is amazing with lots of verities. Its close to the beach and lots of options for dining. Only cons was when I wanted to check out. We stayed there for 10 days so one of the glass shelves in the room got broken. On the check out day they charged us for that plus some other charges which we didn't used(coffee minibar and other things). If you want to book this Hotel I recommend it for sure but make sure to do a pre-check out a day before you want to leave.
