This was a two night stay in a first floor sea front room. Warning to anyone in town for business who needs sleep, avoid the first three levels facing the ocean. The first night there was a cocktail party at the outdoor bar below with drinking expats carousing and yelling that went on until 10pm. That was a good night compared with the second night; the bass thumping of the ground floor nightclub started at 9pm and came straight through the floor. By midnight I had had enough and asked to be moved. Yet the bass could be heard throughout the hotel, wherever you were, the thudding was everywhere. Was moved to a 6th floor west facing room that was stiflingly hot and the air con not working. Managed to get the room down to 25 degrees by 3am but the lack of sleep was dreadful. Then I realised I left medication and toiletries in first room; despite going to front desk twice to ask if I could go and collect them, they insisted on doing it themselves then told me the items couldn't be found and 'must have been thrown out'. The service was unhelpful and indifferent. While they moved me to a room it was only after several calls about the noise that it happened. The older layout of the hotel is unhelpful- you cannot have a nightclub underneath guest rooms, it is a recipe for conflict and lack of harmony. Won't be staying again.
