      • Views are good front and side rooms, south Beach this and many other hotels are located is a really dodgy area at night, be careful.

        Poor customer service and the bathroom is really old fashioned.

      • The beach view is beautiful, overall a very pleasant and "good value for money" stay for my husband and son, staff members are very friendly and helpful. The door of the room is not closing very good.

        The Tropicana Hotel was filthy.

        Balmoral hotel was unacceptable.
