My husband and I booked months in advance, hoping that because it was a Hilton Hotel, it would be a pleasant experience given it is a Chain Hotel versus an unknown Hotel.
The outside looks impressive, but once inside, it is very old and not updated.
We booked a suite, hoping to experience comfort, but it was the oposite. The room was very dirty, the doors were stained with either coke or something in that order, and since being white doors, the stains were very noticeable, add to that the fact that they had not been cleaned in a long time, ALL doors. Our 2 bedroom suite consisted of another room with hardly any comforts, the windows to the "sea view" were dirty and the bottom of the windows had holes in them that lead to the exterior. It gave us a terrible feeling. We had booked for 4 nights but we left the next day. In general the hotel is not appealing at all. If someone would take the interest in painting it and cleaning out or changing the carpet, it might look better, but I can't understand why there is nobody around to check that each room is properly cleaned. We requested air conditioning, it had air. Not cold air. We were there May 2014 so it was already warm outside and the room needed cooling. The staff is very nice and friendly, but it doesn't look like they know the conditions of the rooms. Would never stay there again.
