The rooms are adequately furnished everything is rusted. The kitchen equipment needs improvement especially items that are prone to rust. The bathrooms do not have water and the water is salty which makes bathing an impossible task. The swimming pool is adequate and they allow late night swimming. The food was really nice and a well stocked bar.

We visited the Grand Ocean View Hotel with family and friends, and were accommodated in Apartments 1,2,4, and 8. The hotel was affordable, but a lot of improvements are needed. The rooms, breakfast and service were average. The hotel had informed us that everyone booked on the 2 bedroom apartments (4 people) would be served breakfast, however, this was not the case as they only served 2 people. the others were to pay $5 per head, which was quite expensive for an average breakfast, which was also not properly made. The service was also too slow and at some point we had to serve ourselves, as the servers did a dissapearing act on us. The rooms were not properly maintained and needs renovations. However the A/C worked well. The only bright part of our stay was the pool which was amazingly clean and well constructed. A lot of improvemts needed for this hotel. Wifi was not working, limited space in the rooms, showers had very little or no water at all, and the water was very salty. If you do not need a well maintained place, then this is your place.

Very bad room. No aircon. worse beds, salty water in the shower. Bad and limited breakfast. Lazy staff, unbelievable noisy. Ok pool, fast free wifi. Safe parking. Overpriced. This place must be last option in Mom. Can NOT be recommended.
