Recently ruturned from a lovely 3 night stay in this hotel. When we checked in the reception staff were great, friendly and efficient and gave us a map and some drinks vouchers for the bar a few doors away. We checked in and were directed to our room a short walk away. It was up a flight of stairs, but this wasn't a surprise or a problem reading the previous reviews. The hallway was under renovation but was kept clear and tidy from dust and mess. When we entered the room we were pleasantly surprised. The air con had been left on, which was a blessing in the 35c heat. We booked a double room and were surprised to have 2 double beds. Mine was the most comfortable bed i think ive ever slept in. The bathroom was also fantastic, the power shower was great and bathroom was spotless and well stocked with shampoo, conitioner and soap etc. Some of the other reviews have said it was tired and dated so i guess we must have been lucky to get a recently renovated room.
Yes the rooms are slightly noisy on a night - but it wasnt a problem to us and Yes you have to carry your own bags up the stairs. But all in all this is a fantastic hotel. I would have no problem at all recomending this hotel to a friend and i personly can't wait to return.
Also have to mention the fantastic location, just 2 blocks from the beach and on the fantastic Espanola way. It really is a beautiful street, all lit up at night time.
I would also recommend trying the 'Watchdog bar' just up from main enterance the service there is brilliant and its really reasonably priced for snacks and drinks with a great take out menu also.
