The property is in a central location, near a variety of shops, restaurants, bars and attractions. The beach is minutes away as well as many points of interest.

Negative Reviews

Small pool

Guests report that the pool at this property is very small and there isn't that much space to lounge around it. Guests feel cramped when they want to go for a swim.

Some suites without views

There are many guests that arrived at their suite and found no view. While the property states that it is all waterfront, many of the suites do not have a view. This is misleading to guests and very disappointing.

Noisy property

There are many complaints about the property being noisy. Guests mention that they can hear people yelling by the pool, speaking loudly in the other suites and more.
