What a pleasant surprise. This hotel has the most swim friendly beach. Great swim up bar in the pool. Super service and the casino was small but really nice. I won so it was really nice!!!! Super easy to Uber from and parking is $25 per night. Here comes the BUT.... the airport is across the street. You can here the take offs. I still loved the place and booking another stay there soon.
Very friendly and profesional staff, clean and spacious rooms, nice beach and pool, great location, close to the airport. It has very good restaurants and bars and also a casino that is open 24 hours.
