Reviewed 17 February 2015 via mobile

All apartments are privately owned so the quality of the rooms are not consistent. The entrance, the reception desk and general facilities are very client unfriendly. The traffic flow of cars coming is so organized that you have to wait for ever, even if it is not really busy. The entrance is 10 steps up, no way to role your...

Best two features are the Pool and the beach. Pool deck was nice, pool is large and very clean. Beach is very close by, and is pleasant - clean fine sand, clean water and good surf. There is a below average pool bar serving light meals with poor service. A friendly inexpensive store selling a some groceries, sandwiches and coffee....

First the positive: Ocean front room, window opened a few inches so I was able to enjoy the ocean sounds at night. Free Valet Parking, although can wait as long as 30 minutes in at night and out if it's around check out time; it's free so that's a big savings. No resort fees-nothing is provided, no beach towels, no...

The location of this hotel is perfect-close to the beach, and near grocery stores. However, it is nothing to brag about. If you plan on being out of the room more than in like us, then I would suggest it. The free parking valet is a good plus, but the staff seems short and the wait to get your car...

We loved that place. We had a seaside apartment with a balcony on floor 9 with a spectacular view. The apartment itself was well maintained and everything was perfect. We loved the balcony and had the best dinner of our holiday there – due to the view and sound of the ocean. Valet parking worked well even if this is...

The best part of this hotel is driving away after checking out. Everything single thing about this hotel is awful, deep down dirty, smelly, falling apart, terrible service in every single regard.
