Decent Hotel at busy, windy beach
Posted Dec 21, 2016
The Alamanda hotel has seen better days. That being said, the location is excellent if you like a windy active beach with all water sports. The breakfast they serve here, complementary, is delicious with croissant, fruit cup, fruit juice, and coffee, along with many delicious options for additional charge. The reason I say hotel has seen better days is that they seem to not be investing in maintenance as much as they might. I noticed the rooftop patio was closed and although they are replacing the tiles, they have not deemed it important enough to pitch the roof slightly so water will not collect. That causes water seepage. I also noticed that they have not upgraded their bathrooms and they really should eliminate the elevated tub which has to be climbed up into and change it to a shower stall rather than a tub with a hand shower that dribbles a little water from a wall mount. The front desk attendant, Claire, was excellent and she went over and above in personally showing how the television worked how the air conditioning worked and addressing any questions promptly and efficiently. They have found a gem in her employment. Also the lady who serves breakfast during the daytime was extremely nice and informative. I do recommend this hotel however you have to be able to go with the island flow and amenities.
