This hotel is a paradox, It is modern like many you would find on any beach in the world but this one is no where at all sitting on the road like a large motel -- And it has an extensive spa, larger than most with fine treatments from expert technicians.

I would recommend getting a car there are no restaurants in walking distance. You don't need to pay for parking, there is some free spaces in the area. Breakfast is good, pool area nice. Rooms are a good size and there are 2 sinks in the bathroom.
