Spacious and clean room with excellent breakfast buffet. Negative part of stay was Expedia's poor customer service since they did not communicate properly with the hotel to make changes with reservation.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Very disappointed.
I can sadly say this hotel didn’t come close to expectations. It is in no way a 4 star I wouldn’t give it a 2 star, internet never worked once the rooms are old and run down and the breakfast is a disgrace and unhygienic. There is no management around the only good thing the hotel has is the beach it is situated on...and the gym well that’s not a gym.Treadmill was broken and the other cardio machine was dead.
