Travelled with group
Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We loved the courtyard, dining, and kitchen areas. The bathrooms were very clean and smelled nice. The actual rooms were a bit dirty, there looked to be marks and dirt on the walls. Beds were okay. The staff was very nice and check-in and check-out was super easy. We loved how many shops and food options are close by and walk to the beach and pier made the stay so great.
