The hotel is right next to a different hotel which is the exact same color and style. It is very easy to go to the wrong check in counter.

We had the best check in ever. We were fortunate enough to have “Frank” check us in and he was very thorough and helpful. The bed was comfortable in the room was clean. Our room had a small kitchenette which was very practical. We had a small issue with a water leak in our window that must’ve come from an air conditioning unit above, although the morning staff wasn’t as helpful as the night staff We understand they probably didn’t want to enter the room while we were there, due to Covid. But we had some clothes that had gotten wet that were by the window and we wanted to try them but unfortunately their laundry room didn’t open for a few hours they directed us to go to a laundry mat. we understand they probably didn’t want to enter the room while we were there, due to Covid.

Staying here was such a a amazing experience. We had absolutely no complaints. The pool was beautiful and the rooms themselves were nice and clean. I love how nice the employees were at all times. The area was also near all the hottest bars and restaurants. Walking distance from the beach and amazing stores. Had an absolutely an amazing time!
