Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Location was good. Nothing was more than a $15-20 Uber trip.to any of the popular tourist destinations. Not bad for a major destination. Hotel was exceptionally clean, quiet, the staff was quick, efficient , professional and friendly. due to the COVID45 pandemic, the hotel restaurant and bar were closed. This meant in whatever the weather, walking and Uber was the only option other than the Room Service meals at 25$ for scrambled eggs.
