I like the view of the harbour, right on the water. Most of staff were friendly & the food was nice too.i recommend the harbour view it is worth it. Negative part are that some of the bed sheets have little orange stains & hairs. On a Sunday morning at the breakfast some of the clean pile of serviettes ( paper) fell off all over on the ground and one of a young staff put them back on the clean pile which it is not hygienic. Apart from that we had a pleasant stay.
