2/10 Poor

I had to inform them I had Vip access which was not honored. I had to change rooms 3 times . 1st the room was not upgraded, 2nd the air condition did not work. 3rd time, I asked for a bigger room and I had to wait for it almost 1 hour. The keys did not work, and the service was useless. Never use this property anymore

Everything in One Place
My sister and I loved the location of the hotel and the extremely accommodating staff. We were able to walk to the beach, to the mall, to countless restaurants access street venders , all within a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Pickup and drop-off from the GIG airport was FREE, and the staff went out of their way to ensure that our stay was pleasurable.

Overall the hotel was ok considering the price - good location but facilities quite basic. Didn’t receive any upgrades but Ben though it was a VIP Expedia booking which was disappointing
