This hotel probably lives for the one weekend a year when the F1 is on. The rest of the year it is a standard business chain and with these places you usually don't get a lot of luxury. Given the reasonable price that is understandable. However, this hotel is surprisingly good and is somewhere that you could bring your other half for a romantic weekend. The restaurants are ok, the pool is pleasant and the rooms are pretty nice all things considered. The best thing about the hotel is the view over the island and the mangroves towards the sea. It is really spectacular. I hope it stays that way and does not succumb to the developers.
The negatives – the Mexican restaurant allows smoking at the bar so is a bit smelly but the service was good even if the food was ok at best. Carpets in the rooms (yuk!) and no standing showers.
