The hotel was great, set out in very well maintained gardens. All the staff we interacted with were great. The location right on the bay and walking distance to many bars and restaurants were the big reason we chose the hotel and we were not disappointed.

Room walls very dirty. My only complaint is about walls need to be cleaned or painted. Very disgustting, specially with young children. I always carry with us disinfected wipes. So my husband and I have to do their job, since we call front desk but after 10 rings (x 2) to ask for someone to clean it, we gived up.
