Been there for business trip with 5 days. The Room is ok and shower is good. Bed needs bit more maintenance. The breakfast was monotonous and will be bored even in day or 2. Best Scenic view from the hotel to Sea side.

Good hotel. The only person that will help you at the reception when you have a problem is Osvaldo Chihagane. When everybody says no, he will try to solve it out! Food needs to be improved.... Very nice view.
