Ok except for the sewer water on the floor that leaked continuously in the toilet cubicle and the terrible smell it produces in their room 301. I got sick as a result and had to get medication for this. Unfortunately not a good experience.
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Wonderful view, friendly staff and best location if you do not have transport to restaurants and beaches.!!

Wonderful view, friendly staff and best location to various restaurants within walking distance. Having a kitchenette was also fantastic as we could warm up pies or keep drinks cold in the fridge. The cleaners, servicing the rooms were unobtrusive and friendly.

The reception and hotel staff were friendly and we were well-received. Special mention to Pretti who made sure to assist me with checking in and retrieving my lost items! She was courteous, very kind and extremely professional! The inimitable Courtyard standard of LARGE homely rooms which I've become accustomed was met! This is a key feature I look for; that distinguishes Courtyard Hotels from the rest in my opinion! If you're looking for a home-away-from-home while getting a hotel experience; Courtyard is the place for you! The only thing that did not work well for me was contacting staff via WhatsApp. It was not effective in my experience and I received a response more than 2hours later and none at all. I ultimately had to call reception through my cellphone which was not ideal! The noise level on my last evening was also intolerable but ultimately resolved. Read less
