Kids loved the pool
Hotel/rooms need new painting?
The staff was super nice. They gave us chocolate chips cookies when we did the check in. It was our honeymoon and they put a champagne bottle on the room as well. The bed was very comfy. The location is good, next to the fisherman wharf and a lot of restaurants.
5 minute from pier
First time it happn to me that i didnt get the room that i order in booking!!! Be carefull of that! I order about 1 month before our arrival a room for 2 nights with ocean view it was very important to me. When we arrived i saw that the room is not i ordered and have view to roof of side of the hotel. I went to the front desk and he tald me that they gave the room with the view to other Customers even that i order specific room. He tald me that tommorow i will get the room that i ordered and he reduce 80 $ from the total bill. Having no choice i said ok so the day after we come from our travel at 1530 very very tired with our baby and they said that the room is not ready yet!! She saw that we can wait and she show us a room in the same level with ocean view but we saw the room and it was not really ocean view and without ac so we prefered to stay at the room that we were. So we didnt move and everything took us lot of Precious time. And nobody tell us why we didnt get the room that i ordered.
Very friendly and efficient staff on arrival. Room was very spacious, clean and well appointed with a great view out towards the harbour and bay. Bathroom was bright and modern. Hotel had excellent range of facilities and a great location close to a number of good eateries. Valet staff were prompt retrieving our car.
One of the more expensive options in the area but we did visit during the Jazz Festival and booked close to our stay so that is understandable.
Location is good
Front desk man who checked us in was rude. Bed sheets had odor as if they weren't washed
