Not a good experieince!
It is geared to many buses of tourists and bulk eating. Frequently crowded foyer. It was not a place to linger or feel welcome. There is no credible outdoor area with service to enjoy the day/night. The eating area is for mass production and has a very sterile feel and look about it. There was a stale smell in the eating area. Avoided using the hotel other than sleep. The facilities looked as though a refit is needed. Definitely not recommended

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.
