Colleagues and I have stayed for business at this hotel on a number of occasions this year, most recently, this week (November 2011).
The hotel is well-located and allows guests to walk straight over to and along the beachfront.
The views from the bedrooms are wonderful although the decor in some rooms might benefit from an upgrade. On this latest visit, I raised certain issues of cleaning of the telephone instrument in my room and these were attended to swiftly.
The room service menu offers a number of healthy options and the food is well-presented. The coffee shop is also a pleasant spot for a light snack.
Above all, the staff are always helpful and this is always the defining feature in returning to the hotel.
We will no doubt return again.
