Deluxe Ocean View Room with Private Balcony

We stayed in room number 370, which was located on 2nd floor. The room was well decorated and clean. King size bed had a very comfortable mattress covered in clean white bedspread, where 4 pillows were elegantly placed on the top. 


The wall besides the bed has a elegant wooden pattern. On the other side of the bed, there is a flat screen TV. Deluxe room has a comfortable two seater sofa and a round small table.


Ceiling of the room has romantic color changing lighting, resembling stars when dark.
