    • The city is spectacular and the hotel itself is BEAUTIFUL. The friendly staff really made us feel at home and free internet service is available in the lobby. The rooms are pretty big and full equipped, fish are amazing.

      Drinks after the area was closed, and the place was filthy and the bedroom had a wet and unclean floor and no closet. The two jacuzzis were dirty.
