The Hôtel is ideally located, in the city center. Across the road the seaface and some private beach clubs. It has a nice rooftop restaurant. The food served was nice and we enjoyed it. The rooms and bed size are quite small. But then again great location.

Dear EdwinAnil, thank you very much for you nice words. We do agree that our city has some very best views. Regarding the room, it is in our standards to give a free upgrade in a superior room whenever the one our guest booked does not satisfy his request. So for next times, please, tell us which type of room do you prefer and we will try to please you. We really hope to have you again as our guest so that we can show our best goals. Kind Regards
