We stayed here for 8 days during the back end of our trip.
The rooms are ok but we had ants calling along the head boards at times! The mini bar in the room is extortionate!
Luckily the location is awesome, 7 eleven is right opposite, in the middle of the buzzing strip.
This place is prob the best place to party with the beach party etc but not to stay for the same reason!
It's very loud all day long, to make it worse they pretty much use the same cd over and over again, I could name you the tracks in order it's that bad.
The restaurant is amazing, fresh fish etc, even the western stuff was very good.
I'd say stay here if you intend to get wasted 24/7 but if like us you're rounding up your trip with a couple of big nights along the way this isn't the place to stay.
The music is blaring til about 2am everyday, you won't get much sleep.
Can't fault the service, food, location or the cosmetic stuff but this was like staying at a hotel in the middle of Leicester square!
