This place has three things going for it: the ocean view, a staff member named Reuben and proximity to the train station.
The ocean view is spectactular. Reuben assisted/managed a function I attended and was helpful, courteous, professional and friendly - a real asset to the property. The train station is only a short walk from the property.
Check-in: quite easy and efficient, not really welcoming. Receptionist didn't enquire about whether I'd stayed previously or proffer any information about facilities, amenities or the locality at all - simply took my credit card and gave me a room keycard. Check-out: I checked out at a busy time and the two staff were swamped. They did their best and you can't ask for more than that!
Having stayed here some time ago, I knew what to expect in terms of size and facilities in the rooms. I wasn't prepared for the musty smell and damp atmostphere when I entered my room on the second floor. At the moment it isn't possible to open balcony doors (work is being done on the balconies) and I am certain it would have assisted to freshen the room if I could have opened the balcony door. As it was, I tried to get some air circulating by turning the airconditioner fan up high but it didn't really assist. That aspect was quite off-putting.
My room had all the things I expected it to have but, as other reviewers have said, it is all a bit tired, worn and in need of a refurb - including the now-flattened by use, hard pillows. The room was seriously overcrowded by having both a queen size bed and a single in it - it just isn't big enough. As it was, the armchair had to be jammed in between the desk and cabinet on which the television sat, which meant you sat with your back to the television.
