Clean and very Frendly

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 6, 2004

Spent 3 months there, and like most hotels had it's good points and it's bad ones.

Good: Very clean, frendly staff, free transport to and from airport, near shopping center, on local bus stop. The two attached restaurants were very good, however see below for one in hotel Offers cable internet connection ($10 USD a day) from room, or limited hour access from business center.

Bad: Poor water pressure!!! The shower had less pressure than my doggie! Hot water was only "warm" by American standards, Restaurant in hotel was poor at best! Limited selections, over priced, as a rule would do better going to McDonalds, or do what I did.. walk the 6 blocks to the other hotel their food was great!
Can also be VERY LOUD! There were several parties that went into the wee hours of the morning, load music, drunks, etc.

Unique Quality: Business office offers internet and fax
Desk can exchange up to $100.00 USD a day for each room.
Very nice pools.
Some rooms have a very nice view, other no view.
