We stayed in this hotel, because we wanted an ocean view from the room. Hotel has a nice location right along the beach, and the rooms facing the ocean have stunning views (but no balcony). Other than this, there is nothing much special about the room. Beds are very comfortable, but bathroom was not great. Room service was good, they delivered breakfasts right on time. The front desk however were not very efficient. Although we confirmed several times that we have extended our stay, they messed up our check-out date. When we returned to room, keys did not work, and security were in our room trying to work out what to do with our luggage, which was not cool. Other than that, we found that hotel was a bit run down, with very strange lifts (it took a while to get them running). There is parking available, but you need to pay 50 rants per day. Also, there was internet in the business center, but the prices were astronomic, so we went to an internet cafe nearby. You can stay there for the location (ocean views), but having said that, the neighbourhood did not feel safe at night.
