The old building turned modern and funky was very well done. Rooms and decor great. Apart from the parking situation, it is perfect and different from other hotels. Top entrance old town and quaint. Bottom entrance straight into the strip. Great hotel!

The property is very clean. Access to the property is not easy. We drove up there and it is a steep one way cobble stone drive. There is no place to park. You can unload luggage and then go searching for public parking. Inside the room...there is bare minimum..soap and thats it. A small sign says call front desk if you need conditioner or other stuff..but when you call, they say that its not there. Not sure how this is 4 star.

There is just soooo much to love about this property. Starting with the level of service I received prior to checkin from Hugo at frontdesk, who went above and beyond, before and during our stay. The hotels amenities and general aesthetics surpassed my high expectations. The location could not be more ideal. Literally about 3 mins walk to the beach. Tons of restaurants and shops just as you step outside. No vehicle rental needed. Your amazing front desk reps with whom you can communicate through what's app will gladly arrange any transportation you need. I read reviews about noise so I will say that yes this place is in the heart of everything BUT despite our room one hanging the busy street below, we found the room remarkable sound proofed and were never disturbed by excessive noise. Hotel also offers you laundry facilities with supplied detergent which was perfect if your'e on a long trip which we were.

Nice hotel - well appointed rooms, rather clean and tidy. Towels were changed daily and room made up. Area around the pool was neat, albeit the lounge cushions weren’t particularly clean. Staff were great, friendly and helpful.
