This hotel is right on the beach - the restaurant has a beach view. Unfortunately they charge for WiFi - 0.40R per minute or 30R per 24 hours. We were in room 210 - the mattress was rock solid - great if you like that, I don't. There was also some really annoying noise coming from somewhere - sounded like a big electric pencil sharpener to me. This room looks out on the building, we kept the curtains closed the entire time. The shower is wonderful although the sweet spot for a good temperature was miniscule - the water was easily freezing or burning. The toiletries do NOT include lotion - so if you count on that, bring your own (I had a funny time trying to communicate 'lotion' at a drugstore - they were sure I wanted liquid soap!) The breakfast buffet is listed as included but there is an 80R charge for 'dining' - not so free & not worth that price. The fresh fruit was great but the other stuff was pretty mediocre. We did not eat in the restaurant otherwise. The rooftop bar has an awesome view!
