    Nice hotel

    The breakfast is a full, hot buffet with many selections. The hotel has doormen and is very safe. The pool was nice and the balconies all face the ocean. I was bummed that the beach across is a bit of a walk (you have through the park over the highway) and it doesn’t have anything (chairs, restaurants, water sports, etc.) so if you are looking for that this is not it. I will say, in hindsight, it would have been a nicer day to just sit on the beach by the hotel with nothing that going to Bocagrande. If you have children this place has a playground and the kid’s water area looked nice. Additionally it’s right behind the walking trail and public park area. It’s a great location with kids if you can’t afford an island resort.
