This is a lovely hotel and was almost perfect, except for the wifi in reception, which was very slow. Having said that, this may be due to the local network and may, therefore, be beyond the hotel's control. The other thing which concerned me a bit was the fact that the shutters next to the window did not close hermetically, meaning that, when the air conditioning was on, it was constantly working against warm air coming in from outside, which is obviously not energy efficient and, therefore, not good for the environment.
Apart from that, though, the hotel was beautiful. The cuisine was delightful and, combined with daily exercise, I felt so much better after a ten-day stay there. It actually gave me some tips as to food that I could continue eating back home! :) There were two delightful swimming pools, one with a jacuzzi, the hotel staff were extremely polite and friendly, and in general the hotel was very secure, clean and very well decorated.
It was literally a stone's throw from the beach, although I didn't go there, because my skin is very white and, therefore, I needed to watch out for the sun for the first few days. I would say, use factor 50 initially, limit your exposure to the sun and try to avoid the sun between 2pm and 4pm, as this is when it is strongest.
The main nightlife area is the Yumbo Centre, which is a short, pleasant walk up a winding, very smart, very modern looking road. There are also a variety of bars along the seafront.
