"Didn't get what I payed for."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Shabby hotel. Beautiful view of the beach. Everything felt old needed updated. Pool not heated as advertised. Rooms need a good cleaning. Room air conditioning not working maintenance man did fix it but broke again. Probably won't stay here again to expensive for what you get.
