I spent 1 night, and for me it was quite good experience. Rooms were clean, View of Sea was awesome. You can enjoy sunrise in the morning. It looks awesome. Food and Security of hotel are also good. Plus the facilities within hotel reasonable. I would highly recommend because of its location and reasonable rates.
