                        location, size of junior suite, facilities

                        shower too low, front desk not too friendly, perhaps lack of English?

                        Me and my friend stayed there for just a few nights and we were very pleased. The location is great, just in the centre very near to the beach. The staff is helpful and the rooms really spacious and comfortable. The buffet table was great offering various foods to people with different preferences. The pool was very refreshing. We would surely recommend others to stay there as we were extremely satisfied.

                        It would be nice if the pool water were a bit warmer.

                        Excellent location, excellent breakfast. Good service

                        Lack of restaurant in off-season. Cafe ok but not as good as full restaurant.

                        The staff was very helpful and the location was great.

                        The noise from the streets on Saturday night made it impossible to sleep.

                        Location was great. It is located right in the heart of everything. Breakfast was great. Staff were very friendly and very accommodating. They upgraded our room to a suite because it was our honeymoon.

                        Even though they upgraded our room they gave us a room which had a broken air conditioner in the living room however the one in the bedroom was working.

                        Location in the heart of the city. The swiming pool plus bar/terrace at the roof is great!

                        Little bit noisy, in the room.

                        The downtown location of this hotel is great to stroll to the square and shop. Parking is tricky though and forces you to use the hotel valet.

                        The daytime lady at the front desk was rude and unhelpful. The hotel is busy so they really don't have time to help find anything or recommend anything. Don't stay at this hotel expecting service, but if you need a convenient downtown hotel it is fine.

                        Centrally located with easy access to busses and archaeological museum. Easy walk to pedestrian shopping district and the port. Comfortable rooms and hotel facilities.Very helpful staff.
