    Nice

    Breakfast was rich, location was very personable, staff was professional. Room was normal double with nice balcony. Furniture was stylish and I greatly enjoyed great bed and pillows. The pool was very clean and I had carbonated drinks in the jazz bar.

    Wi-Fi was bad.

    We really enjoyed it, its location and staff. Within short walking distance of kick ass burrito, where you can have lunch. Comfortable base for 2 nights...

    The bed was uncomfortable.
