This place has everything! Great room wonderful food, and excellent staff who speak flawless English. Breakfast was excellent and the cook making the omelettes was phenomenal! The only thing was I wished the wifi was a bit stronger. Lunch was an absolute pleasure and the hotel itself is very well located to big shopping as well as small shops.
