Very nice hotel with a nice swimming pool and a great view. Stuff is really friendly, the restaurant is superb - only the music is annoying. Always the same 15-20 music tracks, from the early morning to late evenings. R. Kelly's Worlds greatest, Blu, Whitney Houston, Brandy, Nelly etc. The one R&B CD from back in the days. My ears...
