The balconies were nice. The rooms not very well presented or comfortable. Seems like run down property in serious need of a face lift. Lighting was terrible, too. Bathroom was close to disgusting and uncomfortable.

I have stayed here 4 times and I won’t stay again. There was a used condom under my sink. I told the front desk and they didn’t care or apologize. She said she would speak with the cleaner and I never heard a thing about it again. The bed sheets smelt gross and the bathroom was nasty. Also one day while laying by the pool the hotel manager told me I was supposed to check out that morning when I said no and showed the reso on my phone he still didn’t believe me and said let me get my phone to show you, when he realized I was in fact right…no apology. This hotel needs many upgrades and a good cleaning. The manager lives there and doesn’t seem to care about how run down it is. The only good things are the pool and the location although its so noisy at night you definitely need ear plugs.
