It was an ok place to stay one night.
It was an OK place to spend the night. Had a great view of the beach! The only thing is I could not reach the locker there was a way up in the top of the door so I put a chair against the handle of the door So I could feel safer.

2/10 Poor

First and last. I booked this hotel because of the pool. We arrived very late almost 1am. Very tired from delayed flight from canada. I booked for 2 beds, but we got 1 bed. I did not asked to changed because of tiredness. The pool is green because of algae, disgusting, not usable. But I paid full amount of $234. The site should not mention that there is a pool, because there is none.
