          Great location. Friendly staff. Vey cosy inveronment with all the green plants and nice flowers. Relaxing feeling.

          Bad communication between reception and cleaning department, we asked (and asked again) for more towels and some glasses (only got 2 although that we were 4 people living in the room).

          Excellent location beach front, really close to 5th avenue and all restaurants and shops. The hotel is surrounded by beautiful nature. Good breakfast, although it could be more varied. Staff is kind and most of the time efficient

          Really poor room cleaning, be surrounded by nature doesn't mean you have to find cockroaches in the room every day!! Better bring your own mosquito repellents

          Location of the hotel and the beach. Overall a nice stay.

          Wifi connection does not work 90% of the time and food in the beach restaurant is pretty horrible.

          the cabanas are very nice.the retaurant staff is so amazing and the included breakfast was fabulous

          The staff at reception is not welcoming or profssional.I asked to see the bungalow first before I agreed to take t and it smelled like urine in there.They said it was normal because of the rain..I refused to take it and asked for another cabana.They have attitude.

          It's situation

          The price you quoted me did not include tax which meant I had to pay an extra $200+ which was an unpleasant surprise

          It's an oasis in the middle of town. Beach front property, easy walk to all the restaurants and shopping.

          The bed was hard.

          Great location, great beach area. We walked along the beach of PDC and can say undoubtedly the northern area of PDC has the nicer beaches.

          The hotel layout is great but the hotel rooms need updating. The room we were assigned was not the room we saw in the photo on Bookings. The staff was kind enough to move us to another room though it was still not what we expected based on the photo on bookings. Also, we had a difficult time with the hotel's arrangements for our taxi to the airport. We were scheduled to leave at 3:30 am and when we arrived on time at concierage the taxi service never arrived, they seemed to just have forgotten. We waited for almost 30 minutes to have a new taxi arrrive. We were told by the night bookkeeper that the concierage staff arranges the taxi service on their own so the hotel is not responsible. The weird part is that we paid concierge directly for the taxi service and got a receipt. When the taxi did not arrive we asked the night bookkeeper to return our money, he said he would pay the new taxi directly. When the new taxi arrived the cost was less than what the night bookkeeper quoted us -- luckily we asked the taxi driver before the night bookkeeper was able to speak to him to get the correct info. So be careful.
