Great Location Sun Sea Surf

Pros: Location, service, all the above.
Cons: Nothing that I can add to.

Pros: Location was excellent.
Cons: With few exceptions the staff were off hand and disinterested.
Location: Fantastic location. Walking distance to all the major sights and to excellent dining and shopping.
The hotel was very expensive, probably due to its location. The facilities were a little tired - especially given the cost. Also, not having any dining facilities is a draw back.
