Everything is perfect about this hotel. Location, accommodation, service, views, food/beverages, lounge, parking. The king size bedroom is very spacious. Very comfortable to hang in front of the fireplace. Staff really work to accommodate guests needs. The restaurant/lounge is a plus. Very convenient to have food/drinks available on the lobby facing the beach. I came for work and overstayed for the weekend just because of this hotel. Will def. go back again.
