This Hotel relies on a sea view to generate business. Were it not for the view, this hotel would easily qualify for the worst possible establishment I have ever stayed in. Certainly in no way a 3 star hotel. More like a 1 star. Don't be fooled by view, the rooms are pokey, with poor ventilation, 1960's finishes, moth eaten blankets (blankets!!!) and PVC curtains. No air conditioning, very crappy bathrooms. Value is about $ 10 / night. If you pay more, you are overpaying! Breakfast serves stale cereals and soggy bacon, and dispensed coffee. The boiled eggs are OK though, as who screws up a boiled egg? I fired my travel agent for booking me into this Hotel!!
The room we were staying in was at a premium as it faced the ocean. However, a large tour bus parked in front of the Hotel, completely obscuring the view!!
This place is run by unintelligent people. A small spend on the rooms would improve comfort by 500% and they can easily charge a bit more then. It's not cheap, as every dollar above 10 is OVERPAYING! Stay away!
