The staff at the hotel were exceptional – they were friendly, helpful, and truly made an effort to ensure guests felt welcome. Additionally, the hotel’s location is a major plus, conveniently situated and easily accessible. However, I encountered some disappointments with the room. The room I booked online showed a computer desk and a clean, well-furnished space. Upon arrival, I was surprised to find a much more basic setup, consisting only of a bed and an exceptionally small shower. When I brought this up with the front desk, I was informed that the hotel is in the process of remodeling and not all rooms include the amenities as advertised online. As someone who travels for work, a desk is an essential feature for me, and its absence impacted my stay. Moreover, the cleanliness of the room was not up to standard. I found a dried blood stain on the bed sheet and noticed that the area behind the TV was not well-maintained. Considering that the hotel appeared to be more than half empty and that there were newly renovated rooms available on my floor, it would have been appreciated if one of these updated rooms had been offered as an alternative. In summary, while the hotel benefits from an excellent staff and a great location, the discrepancies between the booking description and the actual room, coupled with cleanliness issues, were disappointing.

Great location, lots of lovely out door fireplaces with gorgeous beach views. Pet friendly with a public park onsite. Rooms were dated (particularly the bathrooms) and relatively small. Bed was quite uncomfortable. Service could be improved - the spa broke day 1 of 3 into our trip. Reported issue to hotel staff who were not particularly receptive.
