i like the location, and the ability to sit on the balcony and look out over the water and relax is amazing. did not like the security. required 5 card swipes to get to my room - two for the car park, one for the lift an then two for the room. pain in the proverbial when you are lugging stuff too. it was worse when the card didnt work. i spent several trips in the lift trying to get my card to work. this was a daily occurrence. it worked fine on my door and the carpark, but the lift was unresponsive several times. staff were amazing :)
