Positive Reviews

Amazing views

Guests love spending time on the balconies where they can enjoy stunning views of the ocean. Guests often enjoy leaving the balcony doors open so they can enjoy listening to the sounds of the ocean across the street.

Excellent location

With such close proximity to so many great restaurants, bars and entertainment options, travellers think location may be one of the hotel's best assets. The fact that the beach is just a few steps from the hotel makes for an even more perfect position.

Clean rooms

Visitors are satisfied with the cleanliness levels of the rooms. They like the comfortable beds too and mention that the bed linens are lovely and fresh.

Negative Reviews

Disappointing breakfast

Breakfast is described as rather basic and is not as good as guests expect it to be. Guests think there should be more variety on offer in the morning, especially when it comes to the warm dishes. Furthermore, they complain that it takes way to long to refill dishes that run out during breakfast.

Paid Wi-Fi?

Travellers, especially those staying for business purposes, are not impressed when asked to pay for the Wi-Fi. Guests feel that Wi-Fi is a basic service and should be included in the room price.

Slight language barrier

English-speaking travellers often find it a struggle to communicate effectively with the desk staff upon arrival. There are not always English-speaking staff on duty to assist, which sometimes causes a little miscommunication.
