We only stayed one night, thank goodness. On arrival we had a very long wait for a room, as did others. Cleaners seem very slow. Not what we expected. We had a king room, but very small, grubby. bathroom tiny and in need of update. Bed ok, but not very comfortable, pillows uncomfortable. Walls must be thin as noise from other rooms and outside. The air-conditioning very cold and difficult to keep off, if you don't want to freeze up! We were most disappointed with the Wi-Fi, VERY slow, and unreliable, which was so annoying. When trying to remedy this, hostile staff member NOT at all helpful. Breakfast overly expensive for what you get. This hotel needs to be updated, or prices slashed. Over all, would never stay here again, very disappointing. We had a room not overlooking the water, maybe those rooms better? but we wont be back to try them. Actually stretching it, giving this hotel 3 stars.
