Great Location but rooms badly need some TLC. The location of the hotel is great. The rooms badly need redecorated. The shower didn’t have my pressure as the water was escaping from the hose. The TV needed retuned as there were only 6 channels.

Great location stone's throw from the beach. One drawback is lack of elevator. Lugging heavy luggage up two flights was a drag, though staff did offer to do it for us.
