                      Beach front location

                      My flight was cancelled due to the Volcanic ash. Therefore I had to get an alternate flight through la and Miami usa. I therfore lost 2 nights. Arrived a night later and had to leave one night early. I could not get a refund for the 2 nights I could not stay.This non refundable policy implies that this hotel is a bankrupt hotel.

                      It's close to the beach.

                      I didn't like the staff very rudy, when we arrived at hotel in our bedroom . I request two queen beds and was one king and one single, I had to sleep with two kids and my husband and the small single bed, after that when I open the frigde had some drinks opened and was dirty. Talked to the manager and the manager wasn't polite. At the same day at 23:30pm the telephone rings, it's from the hotel asking some information about our car so they could charge, wake-up the hole family. The breakfast time mess, had food , but no plates and cups,ah,ah, eat with your hands!!!!!!! The next morning on saturday , no energy early in the morning, the emergency stairs lights didn't work! This was the worst experience in hotel.

                      Hotel staffs are not helpfull and friendly. A few people can speak english and there is communication problem. In hotel infomation, it says free wifi, but we paid the internet. They could not see our booking confirmed resevation and we waited in loby about an hour for nothing

                      It is well located to the beach and around the corner of a lively street with restaurant and shops.

                      Though it ranks as a 4-star hotel, it is more a 2-star hotel quality - referring to interior, furniture, linnen and breakfast room setting.

                      Room with balcony overlooking the sea

                      The room was not cleaned properly during the 9 days of our stay. The bed linen was not changed. Breakfast was boring, the same every day. The hotel is reasonably new but is already showing signs of age.

                      Location besides beach. And that's all.

                      Too expensive for such standard of hotel. Not real 4-star hotel.
