Nice hotel, good location close to all attractions. The hotel is quite old and needs some renovations and is not well maintained. The big con was the cleanliness, the floor and the restroom were not clean enough. They didn’t clean the room well everyday, I found myself cleaning the floor and the restroom few times. The beach and pool were very nice. The food was ok. The stay was nice but I will not return to this hotel.

Nice stay
We enjoyed, the breakfast wad great, room was large and comfortable. The beach front is very clean and nice. The only issue that we faced was the room cleaning, we had to ask twice that it will be cleaned and waited for 20 minutes to get clean towels. Also on the pool area the location of the beach towels is quite far. Regardless, we enjoyed our stay, the hotel is well located (20 min max to each attraction).
