Hotel was nice. Our shower though didnt drain properly which was a litte frustrating. Hotel staff were fine but the hotel resturant staff seemed to be a little sneaky we asked for regular cocktails and were brought two huge one we just figured it was good value for money until we got the bill. In the US they work on a tipping system for waiters we had been quite generous tipping 20-30% for our whole trip up until this point which according to several tipping etiquette sites we researched was above standard. We were already feeling a little drunk half way through our drinks and the waiter came back multiple time asking when we wanted the next round despite us saying the one would be more than enough for us. It seemed like he just wanted us drunk enough to keep drinking and ordering more so he could perhaps get a greater tip? Cant say for sure that was the motive, but his insitance was bordering on rude. Otherwise the hotel was alright we had a much better experience at the bar where the live music was set up. Although there were some measures taken to minimise noise from outside you could still here music until quite late. The location was great, right on the beach front. I would recommend this place to maybe younger people or those looking to party.
