It was a pleasure to stay at the Beacon hotel. Perfectly located in the Art Deco district it allows enjoying the resturants as well as spending time on the beach which is really just in front of the hotel (just need to cross the street). The room is well equipted and confortable and very quiet. If you have a car,...

I booked a suite, but when I showed up, the front desk staff at first said I didn't have a reservation. When I showed her my confirmation, she suddenly found it and proceeded to tell me that they had computer problems and they gave my suite away. Oh and the best part, they wanted to give me a room with...

I cannot believe this hotel has such high ratings. This hotel should be no more than a 3 stars. It's in great location (right across from the beach) and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, but that's really about it. It's extremely run down and old. They have ONE elevator that can hold no more than 3 people, 2...

Having a drink at the front terrace of the beacon hotel. It's great! Tremendous ! Haha... cheap prices compared to all the other bars on the street and the sizes of them are more than averagely good. You'll be though a very few meters from the cars, noise etc.

The hotel is very old and tired! I dont think it has been updated for a very long time. Gaps between windows and walls and very small rooms. Obviously paid for the location, but there are much better hotels for the same price in the same location. Will never go there again!
