Good food, good location, good security, good suites. Could not ask for more. The only thing lacking for me is that the TV receptions is sucks. Other hotels can provide a better reception. Location wise is the main reasons to choose this hotels being just in front of the Philipines Market.

The best thing about this hotel is the breathtaking view. The pool overlooks the wide ocean and the facilities are maintained well. The food is pretty decent and the rooms are great. The only negative about this hotel is that you have to pay for parking even if you stay overnight.!

Luxuriously renovated with an extravagant lobby and one of the best rooms offered in the town. Although the hotel looks undesirable from the exterior, the interior, from the lobby to the restaurant to the room itself is a completely different story.
