A
8.2 Very good
Pros:The staff was super friendly and the rooms were clean. I liked that we were right in the middle of where the action is, so it was quite convenient.
Cons:No elevator, and no place to hang anything up to dry. Tiny sink in the bathroom and no place to set down your cosmetic bag. Since this is a beach place, it would be nice to have an area to hang swimsuits, towels, etc.
A
5.4 Fair
Pros:Close to the main road and attractions
Cons:Staff was not as pleasant as I would have expected. Was told would get a txt when room was ready before 3pm and when checked back saw a txt was written at the top of the reservation and when stated that I never recieved a txt was just told well your room was ready. Asked for a cot for a grown adult to be added to the room and was given a baby crib. The man at the front desk was the only helpful person that day to fix the problem. The room was run down and had many pieces missing from the walls and the screens outside the windows were falling off the outlets were extremely limited and in very odd locations. The bathroom floor was slanted and many stains on the mattress. The complimentary breakfast was extremely limited and the women helping us was rude. Did not feel that this hotel was worth the price and would not plan on staying here again or recommending others stay.
