        The grounds were beautiful. The room was very large.

        The room's material condition was somewaht dated, and the self parking was very limited for the $12/day charged.

        Good location next to great beach. Good facilities in the hotel.

        There are clearly some excellent rooms in this hotel which are the ones used to promote the hotel on the web site. There are also many poor or only adequate rooms which is likely where you will end up, as we did. This left me feeling very disapointed in the accomodations from the minute I arrived. There were problems with the equipment provided in the studio kitchen (inadequate cutlery, no bottle opener etc..), these were resolved promptly but it is not what I expected. I would only go back to this hotel if I could be certain of the room I was to stay in.

        Direct access to the beach.

        Staff is not well trained and their reception is very poor.The neigbourhood is not good .They are Over priced ! I would not repeat this experience or recommend it..

        Its location in Mission Beach with its own beach right on the bay is excellent. The sand was clean and the water looked inviting but unfortunately we were told the water's not for swimming. If we wanted to do water sports such as Booked.neting, equipment is available for a fee. Pool area's quite large and is surrounded by a lush garden. Area has a lot of restaurants and bars and Pacific Beach with gorgeous sunsets is very close as well. The rooms are good sized although dated with a vanity next to the bathroom which is quite handy. Front desk staff's polite and efficient. Parking although with daily fee of $13 is convenient since parking lot is right outside the room.

        We stayed for 4 nights and on the 3rd day which is a Sunday, our room wasn't cleaned until late afternoon, just as we were returning from the day's outing. The trash bin in the bathroom a that time was not lined. Restaurant has a very limited menu and there is not bar/food service by the pool at this time. Although the room appearance is fine and it is clean, I saw an undesirable insect on the day we were checking out. I didn't alert the staff to its presence since we were in a hurry to leave. The room feel and decor is dated and so is the carpet. There were people smoking in the balcony next door which was not to our liking since we were right behind a dividing wall. I think the hotel should put smokers in a different section of the hotel altogether.

        Location bell hop was very very friendly and helpful.

        Check in gal was not very helpful when I asked questions seemed like she felt I was a bother. food at happy hour was not very good tub/shower was VERY mildewed...one of the worst I've ever experienced. I was very surprised

        The parrots, the location, and the tropical feel. The hotel is also right on the water of the bay.

        The rooms were very average. I didn't feel like it was a $200/night hotel. The bed squeaked, we could hear the above neighbors walking around, and there were about fifteen cigarette butts outside our balcony area(probably from the last guests),

        The Garden and Resturant.

        Buzzing refrigirator noise and rumbling noise from the Garden in the early morning. To small safe. To heavy bedspread.
