They put us in a room with ocean view

Is well located with seaview and is an splendid building but needs more maintenence and the sorrounding areas are not pretty, the inly beauty is from the Caribbean Sea. The staff is ok.

Beautiful hotel with super friendly staff, but rooms could use a little upgrade.

the bathroom in the room was bad, the air conditioning was not very cold and you have to pay to be able to park my vehicle in the hotel

Everything was great; beautiful and enjoyable.

the foul smell in the floors

I like the cleanliness of the establishment

A little old, they should Renew some rooms

If you bringing guest....local Chica to the hotel. Make sure she bring an ID. The hotel is in business of making money and they are milking westerners on this. But, overall...paying the fee to have extra fun was worth it

I didnt like having to pay per visitor

I was harassed constantly by the guards asking me for my room number/where I was going. It was embarrassing. I was there for only four days; I managed. I didn't have a car but they were going to charge me for parking. Otherwise, nice location, great view. Furniture and sheets need to be upgraded; they are simply old or worn out.

Customer service was excellent, clean hotel, breakfast was great. The hotel was a little isolated, few blocks from bars and restaurants so you are able to sleep but close enough to other activities.

The property could easily be a 5 star hotel. Maintenance issues need to be addressed for that to happen. We were informed that the hotel was closed for several months and they were just getting back up to speed. Im sure once they get a hold on these issues, this property will impress. The staff was absolutely wonderful. The security was impressive. Great value as far as price. Can"t wait to go back when they're back running at full speed. I would give it a 4.5 out of 5, and thats in its current condition.

Overall it wad good. Liked the ocean views. Breakfast was good and staff was amazing. Room could use some repairs/updates. I would stay there again

It is an honor for us to be able to serve you, offer a pleasant service and know that we have managed to satisfy you.

In turn, for security reasons, all people must present their identification and be previously registered. We are sorry if this security process did not allow us to fully satisfy you, in the same way we hope to have your pleasant understanding in this regard. It will be a great pleasure to receive you again. Kindest regards, Communications & PR Manager
