2/10 Poor

I gifted a couple an overnight stay at this property as part of their wedding gift. I paid a suite with a queen bed. When they arrived at the property the staff was rude and unwilling to help. They gave the newlyweds a 2 twin beds small room. I paid for a better room. Really disappointed 😱. I need a refund.

Great pool. Very clean. Excellent staff. Beautiful view of the ocean and boardwalk. Nice balcony. We were warned not to walk even a few blocks to restaurants after dark.

Uncomfortable area.
Beautiful on the beach, but we feel unsafe on the area. When we talk to security guards, they told us dongo outside after dark.

Perfect views perfect location perfect stay
One of the very few hotels on the beachfront with sea-facing balconies and convenient parking outside your room. Wide open spaces and a feeling of freedom as the property is huge. Walking distance to beach front, swimming beach, promenade, casino, mall and restaurants!

8/10 Very good

The property is conveniently located for an overnight stay before heading to the airport. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Would most probable suit a longer stay as the rooms have a small kitchen.
