Negative Reviews

Limited variety at breakfast

While guests say there is plenty of food at the breakfast table, it doesn't change much from day to day. Those planning an extended stay often get bored of the hotel's offerings and opt for a nearby eatery with a bit more variety.

A bit far from the beach

Visitors planning a beach vacation say that the hotel is a bit far from the waves. It's not exactly the sort of place you can walk to the beach from, and a short drive is often necessary to get to popular attractions.
