Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
I didn’t like that was no air conditioner and that was unacceptable, dinnind area everybody was swetting and on the walking area, and I had to change room upon arrival because I was assuming every room had air conditioner but I paid xtra for that. Also entertainment was poor beeing the the hotel is so far from the city they should have better atractions

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Decent food—repetitious menu, but good—great staff—hotel shows its age—hard to find location without GPS until you have been there—picturesque setting but rocky beach hard to walk—good value for the money
