Upon entrance, the foyer has a touch of luxury. With the two (and not so friendly people) manning the reception desk, my wait on the queue felt like days. The room that I was initially assigned to on the third floor was smelling of fresh paint but without any hassle I was relocated to the fourth floor. From my new sea-facing room, the sound of the beach was what I needed after a long business day; and so was the view after sunrise.
The restaurant is accessible via the lift, downstairs but did not impress me, - neither my business partner.
Overall, it was good value for money.
