WiFi doesn't work in rooms

Decent location, clean rooms, good views
First things first, if you're from overseas then having non-working WiFi is really going to annoy you. I couldn't even get to the login page and my wife as well. DNS errors tend to point to poor network setup. It only works in the lobby. Apart from this gripe, the hotel is generally OK. The rooms are tidy and the ocean views are generous. The staff are helpful.

Brief but satisfying stay.

Great view. Attentive staff. Comfortable room.
Stayed for 2 nights. Bed was comfortable and room was quiet. Excellent view from my room. Didn't get a chance to try the restaurant.
