Breakfast set up not very organized.
The location was excellent. The rooms were spacious with comfortable beds.
The breakfast was very basic. Often there were not enough space to seat, fruits or boiling water for tea. The house keeping often forgot to refill cups, kleenex....
typical continental breakfast.
I didn't like the location of our room at the end of a very long hallway but the room itself was nice.
It was on a beach.
The temperature in the room was either freezing or sweltering if you had the air conditioner on. There was never a two bedroom option at the time of booking, or I would have paid whatever the cost was. I thought they only had standard rooms. Four days before arrival I get an email to "offer" an amount I'd pay for an "upgrade" to two bedrooms. I have zero idea what the cost would be, as they don't have any listed on their website. I offered an additional $100 per night, which was not accepted. But there's no negotiation, it goes to the highest bidder apparently, and you have no idea what they're offering. Honestly, I'll never stay here again, it seemed a really dishonest way to sell their "nicer" rooms. Tell us the cost up front, and let us book them. Stop this money grab right before vacation.
We had an issue with our first room. When we showed them the issue, they quickly moved our room and upgraded us at no additional cost. Staff was very friendly and we appreciated them listening to us. My kids loved that this hotel was right on the beach!
