Recommended by a good friend who handled our booking arrangements, we were excited to be able to stay two night. We arrived fairly early in the morning, and was told our room would not be ready until much later in the day. (We had been booked into a standard room). We asked what the price difference was to upgrade to a balcony room overlooking the water.. the price was not much different, so we chose that option. Good choice! don't expect frills even with an upgraded room. The beds were ok and the bathroom small. The shower was interesting, but it worked. There was also a smaller shower room as you entered the room to wash the sand off before going in. There was a balcony that overlooked a courtyard area, with beautiful palms trees and a nice glimpse of the ocean. It was a nice treat to be able to sit out and enjoy a nice beverage or snack. There was a refrigerator as well as in room safe, which was nice. With a short walk out, we were on the beach. There is a buffet breakfast which again..no frills, but enjoyable if hungry. Free WIFI, which works best toward the check in area. Did not work in other parts of the hotel. The guard at the gate was very nice, and helped us get a pedicab to take us to the Mall. 10 pesos if sharing with others, 60 pesos just us. (we opted for the 60.) The sandy courtyard area.. you can get a massage, a pedicure/manicure or arrange for a tour/excursion. The beach is well maintained, and absolutely beautiful. Location is good as well.
