For the price and the 3.5 avg rating on TripAdvisor, I was expecting a lot more. I had an upgraded deluxe room with my 7 month old baby and the hubby. The amenities of the room were pretty run down and old. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived too, which was pretty disappointing. The TV had a lot of channels, but half had no sound. There's only cleaning service available every other day. There's no safe and just a basic home door lock that you could pick easily. Our single friend had the regular superior room and it was really small with 2 twin beds. His ref didn't work. (rm 109). The bathroom barely had ventilation, so our swim stuff never dried. We couldn't open our window shade because it bordered a walkway. The room phone also didn't work, so I couldn't order food for dinner (stuck in the room with a sleeping baby). There's also no reception with Globe in the rooms and the wifi doesn't really work. We only got 1 bar and even if it was 5 bars, it was still really slow (rm 104). For the price, you can find something better.
Now, you might be asking why I would even give this a 2
Well... The staff was really nice and friendly. It was somewhat clean. The aircon worked well and the location was on the beach. Also, do to the fact that the hotel was wasn't big or busy, you can get a beach chair at anytime with options for a massage or foot scrub. The breakfast was good too.
I wouldn't recommend staying here.
