We had a comfortable stay at the hotel. The breakfast was nice and lots of things in the menu. The room had big windows, overlooking the open-air restaurant. The staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant was good and refreshments. The hotel provides free pick-up from the airport with friendly driver.
