Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Overall, I was satisfied with the hotel and facilities. The new management is doing better than the last one in addressing guests' requirements. The bed was very comfortable, large room and ample space. They need to take care of mouldy odor in the bathroom, otherwise rest is all good.

Big, comfortable rooms with all amenities and comfortable desk area, which is perfect for business travelers who need to work. The service is very friendly and attentive, but the lunch and dinner choices are limited. The ocean view open air restaurant is splendid and ideal to decompress.

First, a shout out to Salim and Gabriel at the front desk. (Sorry I'm late with this.) My room was clean, very large, individually air-conditioned, very quiet, and more up-to-date than my own home. Mosquito-free! Good thorough security. The room design/styling/layout was unusual, a bit quirky, and cool. Bathroom was palatial. Since I was there to work, I appreciated that...

For a government sponsored trip, it meets per diem.
