It could just have been the time of year, but for a 4 star hotel, it was pretty average. The pool was very small and needed to be cleaned, the lifts were very small and the ir conditioning outside of the rooms did not work. Even though the hotel
was situated on the marine parade, we could not visit the beach due to the sheer volume of people that were there.
