We stayed just one night in this hotel, it is quite tastefully decorated, and in a fantastic location right near the beach and restaurants. There are free passes to a nearby gym which was very well appointed and easy to find.

5 minutes plus minus and safe, keep eye on traffic when with kids (lots of small but busy little intersections) drivers in area are not to pedestrian friendly - especially the taxis which dominate.
