Loved our stay in the king suit: clean, modern, lovely view, cafe downstairs. Just across the road from the marina. Swimming pool was very warm in July :) Bathroom, however, got a lot of condensation due to poor air exchange and no heating: floor, walls, soggy toilet paper. I would imagine it would be better in warm summer
