      The location of the hotel is fantastic, very close to Lincoln rd but also right in front of the beach, just perfect. Breakfast was very good to have included, it was good and sufficient. Lobby was very nice, friendly staff. 3 pc with printer available, very convenient.

      The cleanliness of the room was the only bad thing, they literally didn't clean our bathroom for 4 days. But when we complained at 9 pm, they came straight away and cleaned it spotless. Also they didn't vacuum the room carpet during our whole 5 night stay.

      we very much enjoyed the daily pool parties during the winter music conference though for other travellers it should be made clear that these will be held as they are very loud and prevent families using the pool area

      could do with more sound proofing ie double glazing

      I liked the fact that i was in the center

      I didn't like the fact that it was a bit old but i didn't face any problems. One thing i have to point out is that at they wanted to charge me more than i had booked through your site (300 usd more) but i had the reservation form to prove that i was right and finally they charged me with tax which i had the impression that was included in the booking fee. was i right or not?

      The beach . the pool . the food an bar. The view was wonderful. The area with the hammocks was very nice

      The staff there was very unfriendly. No one hardly spoke . no one even ask how are you today. Not friendly at all. Bathrooms were very small. And it took nearly all day for the room to get cleaned. We stayed 4 nights.

      This hotel is on the beach and its location is very convenient. The bar/restaurant at the pool is great and staff is very nice.

      The website stated that there was wifi in the room but there wasn't. In any case, the hotel has a business center with 3 computers free of charge.

      The location is convenient - that's it.

      Worst stay ever, a true nightmare. Stay away! Please! It's horrible. Dirty rooms, moldier than you can imagine. We got sick of it and need a medical treatment now, same to our children. They take medicine because of the heavy dust.

      Outside bar/restaurant and pool area was nice, apart from the pool itself. Good towel service.

      The pool was dirty. Beach bed/umbrella people wanted to charge us full price for 1 1/2 hours usage. Breakfast was rather unexciting.

      Very good position close to Lincoln Road and Ocean Drive. Breakfast included (even if not particularly rich). Nice atmosphere & kind staff.

      Room was quite small, compared with price. The room and the hotel in general (see pool) was dirty (dust everywhere) and old (scrathed bathtube...). Old and ugly carpet. It seems they tried to improve hotel value, but it cannot be considered a four star hotel yet.

      This hotel offers a great location and a nice compromise between price/location and quality. While by no means a luxurious accommodation it offers good quality rooms and easy access to shopping, events and beach. I would not stay there for vacation but is perfect for a quick business -shopping trip.

      You will have to go to a nearby hotels for food/drinks
