The hotel is a beautiful setting right in the city but has a resort feel as it's on the ocean with surrounding gardens. Quiet and well kept grounds. rooms are clean and have all the basic amenities. A great place to relax

Maintenance and upkeep of room is clean and neat. Front desk and room attendants are customer friendly and efficient. Prompt service. However, you need to improve your selection and variety of food in Cafe Uno. Food served or offered is not value for money.

It was a bit disappointing because aircon is not that cold, pesticide spraying in the hallway was done while we were still inside the room. insect pests (cockroaches) everywhere. i think this is the reason why we got a "discount" during our stay here. all day and all night noise due to construction/repairs?

One thing that really bothers me is that there are no elevators in the hotel. I think this is the first hotel I encountered without elevators. To add, the stairs are so steep that it's very to trip over and stumble upon downwards. This is very troublesome especially if you have a baby. The hallway leading to the room looks...
