DO NOT FALL FOR THEIR OCEAN VIEW its horrible there is absolutely no view and they reserve their best views for their regular clients. What you dont see here is that they have different rows of bungalows facing the ocean and if you get the one furthest away all you will see is trees and rooftops. We changed the room twice and the lady said she is ‘upgrading’ us for free to their premium suite with the best view all it turned out to be is the same bunglow a little closer to the ocean. She made us feel as if people pay more for that room but its exactly the same room. The rooms look old and worn out and they make u pay a lot for these so called Bunglows. The fireplace didnt work the whole time. They need to up their game and please do not decieve your customers by calling it ocean view pleasw modify the description to semi partial view. And charge less if u cant actually promise that they will get the view.

The only problem we encountered was the lack of access to the gym. We have stayed at several facilities during COVID and most kept the gym and spa functioning.

Love the view and the privacy the property is. The Room is spacious and bathroom is also spacious. the tub can also see the view this is great! Cleanliness is great and the atmosphere is amazing. Too bad only one restaurant open at Coliseum and not anywhere else, no Spa and No Gym. If there is Spa it would be perfect.
