The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was as expected, having AC and fan. The pool was nice and great to be able to walk out of the room straight to the pool. Restaurant was good quality too. A great stay as a quick walk to the beach

The staff from check in/out, within the restaurant were amazing and very friendly. The hotel room did not have many amenities (bar soap - just liquid-, hand lotion, etc.) overall an amazing location with outstanding staff so I will definitely stay over there again.

Super friendly and helpful staff. There before check in and they took our bags and gave us towels and directed us to pool area. Generally always smiling and helpful for any questions. Won't hesitiate to go back. We were worried about noise as we were on the "city view" road side of hotel but it wasn't an issue at all.
