Apartments Building Has elevator but Rooms Building not have Elevator. We never stated that there was one.... By the way every client want to have top floor for the amazing view, even if no Lift.

Small cozy hotel just opposite where the cruise ships visitors are sailed into the beach. Small but nice well decorated room with a excellent view (remover to book terrace and view). Located in a short walking distance from the city center but in a little more relaxed area.

Checked in to a beach front room #503. Sea frontage had made my fatigue evaporated immediately. Nice & clean room. OK reception. One of the setback is the shower water is like 70 years old man having prostate issue. Water come & go due to insufficient pump pressure. Well, I m on the 5th floor, stunning view, yet come with...
